Memories Timeline


  1. JT, you were a great friend, mentor and boss. You were an honorable man with a great heart and one that left a mark in many people's lives. You will be missed and will not be forgotten.

    Rest in peace and may your family find the strength and resignation to overcome the void you leave in this world.



  2. John was a kind man with a lot of integrity. He was a good friend and colleague who will be missed. I had the pleasure of working with John at the OFR. He came in to help us advance the program when we needed help. He built a strong team and delivered on the Office's mandate.

    I knew John personally before, when he worked with my husband. I am glad to have got to know him better personally and professionally and meet his beloved wife, Dawn.

    Our sincerest sympathy to Dawn and his family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of sorrow.

  3. Dear John, You were a great and respected person with big heart. You will always stay in our memories.

  4. So sorry to hear this news this morning about John. I worked under "JT" for 3 years through last June – he was always fair, honest, and a straight shooter. He had high expectations for his team and equally high standards for himself, which I always respected. He also made himself available to his employees and had a great story to share. My deepest condolences to his family, his friends, and all his colleagues at OFR.

  5. John was the best boss I ever had. He was stern but fair and I had great respect for him. He will be missed. My prayers are with family and those whose lives he impacted. RIP
