Condolence From: Jeff Bjorck
Condolence: I just learned that John is in Heaven, and I wanted to pay tribute to him. John was my swimming teacher in the summer of 1969 at Franklin pond, and he taught me an invaluable life lesson that I have never forgotten: Do not give up just because something looks hard or scary.

I needed to swim from the diving board to shore, with the waterfall on my right, to pass the beginner test. As the instructor, John tread water between the diving board and the shore. I jumped into the water, and as an 8-year-old boy whose dense little body would not float, I immediately began to feel the pull of the waterfall. I cried out and asked John to help me, but he stayed put, calmly saying, “You are fine. You can do this.” My protests escalated as my fears rose, all the while kicking and doggy-paddling as best I could. John continued to respond to my cries for help with, “You are fine. You can do this.” My fear began to mix with anger as I started to feel that this man didn’t care if I went over the falls, but John was right. I stopped asking for his help as I passed him in the water and then swam to shore, passing my test with both a sense of pride for my accomplishment and an appropriate sense of embarrassment for my failure to trust him.

If John had rescued me that day, he would have done me a great disservice. I would likely have forever been afraid to swim in deep water, and I would have missed the opportunity to keep trying in the face of fear. Throughout the years thereafter, whenever I saw John, I always thanked him for that life lesson. Today, I want to do so one final time. Thank you, John, for teaching me to face my fears. I look forward to seeing you in Heaven one day, which is a better place since you arrived.

With Gratitude,

Jeff Bjorck, Ph.D.

Condolence: Dear Scott Family,

I am saddened to hear of John's passing. I remember John and Joyce from my Franklin Pond days and on the swim team. So many great memories of him from my childhood days. John was a very nice, kind, friendly man. In my later years I would see him often at the Hamburg Post Office, always smiling, saying hello and asking how I was doing. My condolences to his family. May he rest in peace.

Condolence From: Dorothea Zsenai Mongulla
Condolence: We are so saddened by this terrible news. I always knew John was a wonderful Christian and always looked forward to going to Heaven one day, but we never thought it would be this soon. "John, you shed light wherever you went. I'm sure your are in a heavenly band now. Our lives will not be the same without you! And Franklin will never be the same without you. All our love to you!! Steve told me that you had been training on the Olympic ski team at Great Gorge back in the 60's?" Wow.
Love, Stephen,Dorothea,Jennifer and Abigail.
