    Dear Michelle and John’s Family
    We will remember John with sincere fondness and a smile. His great laugh, his wonderful storytelling. John always spoke with love and pride about his family and friends and his ability to listen to people and recall events in other peoples lives was extraordinary. John celebrated others successes as if they were his own – he was a very kind and generous man with a wonderful spirit.

    I will always cherish the memories of his smiling face at all of the car club events that he and Michelle came to. He always had a happy attitude and was a good friend to have.

    Dear Michelle and John’s Family,
    The loss of John is such a shock, I still can’t believe it. He was my best friend for the past 20 years, I’m not sure if I ever told him that but he is and always will be. Knowing John has truly been one of the highlights of my life, we shared so much and he was always there for me.
    John and I drove and raced our MG’s together, golfed and spent many hours just hanging out. We shared so many interests and moments.
    His laugh and smile was always welcomed and will be missed.

    Our Sincere Condolences to Michelle, to his entire family and to all of his many friends.

    Brian & Debi Fidler
