    Saying Goodbye to our brother is very hard.. He was a kind, and honorable man. Ready with a laugh and smile. On one pass home from the army, he found me and my twin brother out on the roof of our front porch. He gathered each of us under each arm and went downstairs to give our mother a firm talking to, Ha. We will always remember him as our loving brother. Love, baby sister, Joanie

    Sorry to hear of John’s passing. I attended prayer breakfast with him years ago at the Jim Dandy. He would sing the “Yes we have no banana’s” song when we were in Marsh. Great guy.

    I remember Uncle John’s calm, friendly personality–he and Aunt Francine hosted me for a week at their home where we had so much fun especially at a picnic including Stanley and Carla–just a memory I will always have, they being very kind and patient as usual! God bless our uncle!

    So sorry for your loss.

    My condolences and much love go out to Carla. I knew Mr. Lintner because Carla is my sister-in-law. I was able to visit with him on several occasions, and he was a delightful man. We watched Carla act or direct many community theater productions together, and he was obviously a very proud father. His enjoyment of those outings made them even more delightful for those who were with him. I am sorry this world has lost such a lovely man.

    Dear Carla, I’m so sorry about you father. I feel like he knew my Dad. They sound so much alike. Their service to the country and Marsh connection. I know it is hard to say goodbye to him. Your in my prayers at this time. Sharon
