  1. June (Jarvis) Fox condolence:

    My sincere sympathy to the family and friends of my uncle John. John was always cheerful. A visit to his house or a visit to Wisconsin from him was always filled with laughter and great times!

    I will always remember him with great fondness. May time heal the sorrow and may you be blessed with only happy memories.
