John was my grandfather. Although I never got to meet him, I always wonder what he was like, and how his family was. I hoped one day we would somehow come together. We, as people, tend to think that the time to do those things is limitless. This is a harsh reminder that it is not. This, and he, will be on my mind for a long time. My condolences to those he loved, and those that loved him. I hope you find peace during this very tough time.

I wanted to say how very sorry I am to hear the news of John passing. I was just a young girl growing up and I remember John visiting my dad “ Buddy” Schetrompf. He was a very kind man and we always loved when he came to the house. Prayers and comfort for you Joann during this difficult time . Sending hugs from Texas!! Cindy Schetrompf/Brallier
