Please accept my deepest sympathy from the passing of Jon. I share the feelings of the many people who knew him from school, the workplace, or wherever they gained his friendship. I had the pleasure of knowing Jon though school at New Philadelphia and working with him at Shenango in Dover. Many years could pass between our conversations, yet we could continue sharing memories that occurred in the early 1970s. Fond memories of Jon will continue among the people who knew him.

I remember that whenever I would go to a foreign country, I would try to get some of the local currency for Jon. As an avid coin collector, he mentioned it to me a really long time ago. So I tried to get him what I could. I think I was able to get him some Deutschmarks before the switch to Euros. He should even have some Iraqi dough with Saddam's face on it. But I know I'll see him again when I get called home.
