  • Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your husband, father and stepfather. Although I have not seen John in over 20 years, I remember what a true gentleman he was when we were both employees at Widener Law School. He was much too young to pass away; however, the messages left above indicate he has left a legacy of love for his family and care for his colleagues and clients.
    Rest in peace, John.

  • Known John since 1960 when were friends and fraternity brothers at William Jewell College in Liberty, Missouri. He had and shared a high sense of culture in the arts and in his back room in the fraternity house you would hear strains of Verdi or Carmina Burana on Saturday afternoons while others were trying to learn he “twist” for an upcoming dance. He was the most loyal and unsnobbish of friends…not making fun of me when his dad, also a lawyer, and mom took my uncultured young self to a prestigious country club in St. Joseph, Missouri where I nervously ordered two kinds of potatoes and sent a chicken leg flying from the table trying to separate it from the thigh. Although we have not been in touch for decades I feel an emptiness knowing he is gone…but so happy that he left a loving family behind.
