He was a wonderful man full of life pleased to have known him, great joy to the heart of those he loved. We will surely miss him.
To the Boes family, My deepest sympathies to all of you on the passing of your father, John. I met your dad and worked for him on a special truck project at GMC Truck starting in 1976. I always appreciated his guidance and sense of humor. Bradenton, Florida
My deepest sympathy to all of you. It was so shocking to realize that the seemingly well John that we saw so recently was going to be taken so soon. My thoughts go to Ryan, his 'live in' buddy. Susan is tied up with opening a new school and just couldn't leave. She joins me in sending love and prayers. Pauline.
