    Dear family, To the greatest man I ever knew. A father a father , a friend a man of integrity,strength and good wisdom. A Marine medals of honor of love and generosity. Love for his family was so big I could hardly be in the same room and imagine I was there to.. I called him and Charlene the greatest marriage I every knew. The love of his wife and children was so positive. The times I saw him I would always go away with so much more.John and Charlene will always be a team.l look up to the heavens and I know he is there. He is joyous happy an free he will be missed a lot. I’m so glad that he was a part of his life. Love always Minister Scott Porter and Kathleen
