Memories Timeline


  1. Kathy, I was so sorry to hear of John's passing. He was such a kind and loving person and would help anyone in need no matter how big or small the task. He will be fondly remembered and missed. My condolences to you and John's family. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers cousin.

  2. I’m very sorry to learn of John’s passing.    I have a lot of good memories of growing up with John in Doe Run.    My condolences to the family.  

  3. Kathy, we are so sorry to hear of John's passing. John could make anyone laugh. He was so fun to be around. We are so glad you two met with everyone at the park in Farmington last year. It will be a great memory for us to take forward. The Lord allows us all kinds of special memories of John and we will cherish each of them. But, we can rest in knowing John is ok. We can know John is happy and healed as we born-again believers are promised from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:6-8 says, "Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: (For we walk by faith, not by sight:). We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord." This life is a gift from God but, only for a short time. While we are here, we should glorify God because, 1 Corinthians 6:20 says, "For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's." When we leave this earthly body we look forward to eternal happiness in heaven with our Lord Jesus Christ. There is no greater joy we can experience than to be finally home and present with the Lord. We will continue to pray for God's peace for you and John's family. Philippians 4:7 "And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." And Kathy, we will be in touch with you soon to share and make even more memories. We love you. Tom and Loretta.

  11. Dearest Kathy, Family, and Friends…..
    Firstly, Kathy- Words cannot express my sorrow for you. May the Holy Spirit abide with you and give you comfort, strength, and peace.
    The Jennings Family lived right down the hill from my Family (the Pritchetts in Doe Run) while we were growing up…..John was always workin' on muscle cars and race cars when I was a kid..My brother Mike was right up in the middle of all their shenanigans-forever Friends throughout their entire lives- True Best Friend Brothers…
    SO many good memories! I got to watch John, Karen and Mike racing motor cycles at the Chat Dumps for years..John was such an artistic talented mechanic and car painter, I got spoiled listening to what a muscle car motor should sound like…it was awesome!
    John was such a good Spirit. His positive attitude and humor made everyone happy! John took care of and helped so many people in his life, out of the kindness of his heart…John even took care of me at times as a Brother would.
    John, and you Kathy, will forever be in my heart.

  12. Karen and family I’m so sorry for your loss. He was a great guy. 
    Keeping you all I’m My Thoughts and Prayers

  13. Hey Brother I don't think I ever thanked you enough for always being there for my mom and for the love you gave my sister and putting up with her (just kidding Kathy :)). I may have ribbed you a little about your choice of cars, but I always enjoyed your love of cars and Fords. I am sure the wings you are wearing have a blue oval on them. I love you Brother and you will missed. Our family was very very blessed to have you. Every family needs an Uncle John. Pat and Jeanne

God bless you all

  15. Karen's brother but really ALL our brother. I loved John so much! So many hilarious memories! Going in to a concert & John said I'll hide the Whiskey bottle in my boot, they'll never think to look there! Of course the FIRST place they looked was his boot! John was the ONLY one of us with enough brains to never get rid of his cool car! Every minute with John was a joy. I'm dumbstruck that he's gone. Love you so much Karen.

  16. So sorry to hear of Johns passing . He was one of the nicest people I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet. May he Rest In Peace in Gods loving grace.
