3 Condolences for John Edward Vogel

Johnny was a huge influence at the 1803 house and all who gathered there.
All my love to his wonderful family and friends.
Johnny was like a brother and as Terry Brubaker says, a major presence in my early childhood. Mrs. Vogel (for reasons too silly to explain, many of us called her Granny) welcomed all of us neighborhood kids in to 1803 to be part of the extended household. Johnny called us “the little girls” and just accepted us. I learned to listen to and enjoy Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet under his tutelage. My thoughts are with everyone in the family and especially his boys. Thank you Cathy for keeping us in the loop and sharing the great pictures on Facebook.
When us Tindall’s moved into 1803 after Ruth and Walt got married John was very welcoming and we formed a brotherly bond which I appreciated. I remember watching the first Super Bowl with him on the porch. I also remember he loaned me his new ford galaxy convertible to go to ocean city nj with then girlfriend Midge Osterlund. I had some great conversations with a John and it’s sad to think he is no longer with us.
