    Aunt Carol, David and Sheri,

    We were so sorry to hear of Uncle John’s passing.

    I have countless found memories of Uncle John and all of the fun times we spent together. Whether it was fireworks or go-carts, he was always a source of great fun and adventure.

    You and your families will be in our family’s thoughts and prayers.

    Phil, Sarah, John-Mark, Grace and Benjamin Torrence
