David A. Denslaw left a message on August 1, 2023:
Sincere condolences and deepest sympathy on John’s passing from The Denslaw Family. I was fortunate to first meet John in a NW Indiana summer baseball league as a member of a team made up of Gary Tolleston and Gary Edison athletes. Not only was John a great “glove man” in the infield, and a very talented hitter, but he was the best possible teammate, always greeting everyone with that big smile, and always encouraging and helping all of us to improve as a team. Although it has been decades since I last had the opportunity to see or talk to John, I will always appreciate the positive and significant influence that John had upon me as a young kid enjoying summer baseball in “The Region”. May he rest in eternal peace.
Donny Mackanos left a message on August 1, 2023:
So sorry to hear this Debby. Bash was the best coach i ever had. I was on the 1970 World Series team. He loved his players and taught us to play with passion and grit. I'm sure he was the same with his family. A great, great man.
Deb Nestlehut left a message on July 31, 2023:
My thoughts and prayers to Debbie, their children and grandchildren. John was a dear friend that I met at the Cedar Creek. Would stop and talk with him every day I was there. Loved visiting with John and will miss him. I am always available Debbie if you need anything.
