    We were touched how John reached out to Jude and Vaughan (Julien’s classmates). John would help them find lost boots, console tears or help them get into class before bell. We saw him get out of his truck and help push a parent’s car out of the snow. We will miss seeing that tall helpful cowboy around school. Our condolences to your family at this.

  17. Stacy and Byron Veilleux and Maia :

    We are so sorry to hear about Johnny. I enjoyed chatting with him while we were waiting for the kids to come out at the end of the day at school. Earlier in the school year Mrs. Henderson’s class had a rock museum and Johnny noticed that Maia was interested in dinosaurs. The next day he brought her some dinosaur teeth to keep. Maia was so excited! Johnny will really be missed and we are so sorry for your loss.
