I meet you a long time ago. When my sister and my brother in-law first got married. And Jim and you and some other guys would play your guitars and we sit around and listen to you all play some great jams for hours. And then I worked with you in Lowell, at Ashland Products. You always were such a kind & nice guy. You seemed to have touched so many lives all over. Rest In Peace, John .
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

There are no words to express the sadness I feel for John's family. We were neighbors,kids, and most of all he was my friend. John was there for me when I needed words of encouragement to help deal with my mothers illness and death..They say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree John was strong and a true friend just like his mother.You will be missed my friend. Thanks for being you ..Give Mom and Dad hugs for me.

John was a very kind and caring person. I had on more than one occasion called him Steve because he looked liked a Steve to me. He would laugh and say it's ok. We will miss him.

To Mrs. Leathers and Tommy...I wish I knew the right words to say...Both my boyfriend, John Hodorek and I worked with John when he was with Ashland Hardware down in Lowell. He was always kind to me and made me feel like I was part of the group that was his department. My John and I, along with others had great times out at his house for the October Bonfires...You are in my thoughts and prayers.
