Dear Ruby and family, The Lord placed John on my mind yesterday because I just saw his mom Betty had passed away. John and I dated some in high school and I had not seen him since our 5th reunion, I looked each time we had a reunion for him. I am sorry for your loss and I hope to see him at our next reunion in heaven. Thoughts and prayers, Debbie (Curtis) Sager

John would come to The River Inn to swim almost every day of the week. I always looked forward to seeing him. He was such a sweet man and we would have fun conversations about life! :) I sure will miss seeing him throughout the week! I hope you will find peace and comfort during such a heart breaking time in life.
My condolences,
Alisha Knoble (manager of The River Inn)
