Life was difficult for John, especially when he reached adulthood. John was fiercely independent and wanted the world to know that, even if this could sometimes be to his detriment. This could sometimes present a challenge to those who loved him most and wanted to help him. John loved his family and was a kind and caring soul who respected all life. He was a whiz when it came to computers. He was proud of his Red Corvette that he owned in better times and enjoyed showing it at the All GM Car Show. Our hearts are broken and we will miss him forever. We will always remember the love and good times we had together. He will remain in our hearts forever.Love, Dad  John was a loving son. He had a wonderful childhood with his brothers who loved him dearly.  He had autism and it was getting more difficult for him to manage as he transitioned to adulthood. He knew he had autism and this bothered him greatly, it was always on his mind and made him feel different.   His family loved him very much and he knew this fact. He felt love from all of us and would mention it every time we would meet. He always said, “Love You” back to us too.  Even on his last day he made contact with mom and dad and his brothers to let us know he loved us. The note he left for us to find also said we were the best family and he felt loved and loved each of us in return. John, you were my first chance at being a mother, and for this I always will be grateful you came into my life. So many happy times, fun events to go to and vacations filled with nature hikes and picnics. John, you were very creative, loved computers, cars and were kind to others. You were always the helpful one in your classes and at your apartment where you lived. Everyone who knew you will miss your presence in their lives. John, you are over your pain now and hiking with your grandparents in heaven. You are probably waiting for the rest of us to join you. You will live on in our hearts forever.  We miss you greatly and always will. Love, Mom  John, you entered life on January 21st, 1989 to your loving parents Bob and Kathy. You welcomed your brothers Thomas and Steven shortly after. You quickly took the role of the leader of the pack, creating fun activities indoors and outdoors.  John enjoyed his time with his family going on vacations. Many of which were to the North Shore where he enjoyed finding agates and skipping rocks in Lake Superior.  The family cabin on Farm Island Lake was another favorite family vacation area of his, where he enjoyed leading the exploration on the hiking trails or riding bicycles around the many gravel roads with us brothers, later returning for dinner and sitting around the campfire with family.  John had an immense love for all animals having cared for many Guinea Pigs and cats, and often putting the needs of the animals before his own. John’s hobbies included electronics, which primarily included building and fixing PC’s and his other love was for cars. At an early age John figured out how to link his brothers PC’s to play multiplayer games during the summer breaks from school. My brother was also very proud to show off his latest PC builds, this also carried over to his car hobby with his most prized car being his Red C6 Corvette, which he saved up for when he was working in the field of Computer Networking and Repair. Everyone in John’s life loved him and wanted him to be successful in all his endeavors.  He will be immensely missed by all, but his memory will live on forever. Love, your brother, Thomas  John was a gentle soul who above all else, loved his family.  He had an unequal talent for electronics which served as both a passion and profession in his life.  Even as he struggled with health and fought insurmountable mental challenges, he still insisted on helping all those around him with the computer issues. He is deeply loved by his family, who will forever cherish the warm memories of time spent together and will be dearly missed. Love, your brother, Steven
