Our thoughts go out to you and family in this sad time. If I can help with anything, please let me know. I was a fellow member of John's breakfast group. His wit and charm will be truly missed. We could always count on that happy smile that made the day begin right, and he was the only one of us who could remember a joke long enough to retell it properly. Take care.
Frank and Mary Weibel

Sharon,

So sorry to hear of John's passing. We really enjoyed John in the walking class at the Y. We loved chatting with him. If there is anything we can do to help, please let us know. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

John will be missed by the Blanchard family. John was our neighbor, friend and witty observer of people including the family. John could tell a story with a wink and a smile that always displaying grace and charm. You could always count on great stories about his days as a U.S. Air Force Officer in England, junior-high teacher in Des Moines, graduate student at Arizona State University---and winters in Florida with Sharon after retirement. While his stories have fallen silent the memories of John have not for the Blanchard family.
