I remember John when he came to my parents home to sell us world book encyclopedias back in 1962 on Ironton St. Since then he was a very good friend of my father Robert G. Fischer and family who was the Democratic Chairman for NT. My family has known John all these years and he was at my dad's funeral 8 years ago. He was a very nice, personable and lovable person to know and love as a dear friend.
Please accept our sincere condolences on the death of your father John. (Mary Jane
Fischer and family)

My condolences to John's family and friends. I'm proud to say that I've known John for over 20 years. He was the most patriotic man I've ever known. My family and I will remember him forever. Rest in peace John. I can still hear your voice saying "shake 'em up!!" no matter what the drawing was for. Sincerely,
Dot, Alan & Josie Swift
