Wess was always so kind to me... especially when I first moved to Reading so long ago and knew no one here.  I will never forget all the fun and laughter we shared with our friends.  Rest in peace my dear friend.

John was an incredible pal at IUP and beyond. Our antics were well known in the best of circles on and off campus. He had a pet tarantula named Borris, John was so charismatic, he was able to convince me (and a few others) to allow him to set Borris on the back of my hand and allow him to crawl up my arm...that is how we met. From that moment it was nothing but grand times...John was a brilliant guy with incredible insight as well as fantastic taste in music. Cheers, John!

It seems to me that high school was just yesterday and I remember Wess saying something with a completely straight face that made everyone around him laugh–and annoy the teachers!  He was a great guy and could always make you laugh even when you were bummed.  My deepest sympathy to his family and friends.

Worked with John so many years at Bollman, he was an amazing guy both as a co-worker and a friend.  Loved coming in each day and just shooting the breeze, talking football, etc..  Always put a smile on your face or had a joke to cheer you up.  Deepest condolescences for the family and friends.  He will definitely be making everyone in Heaven laugh each day
