Thank you for visiting our Dad’s Memorial page. I want you to know it means a lot to us that you are thinking of him and I just wanted to list a few things that bring me happiness remembering them.
Going fishing and fishing trips
Playing catch with the frisbee
Holidays
Halloween and carving the pumpkins
Never learning how to mow the lawn or wash a car properly
Dad loved to tell stories especially ones that were at his expense. My all time fave was from a fishing trip up north in the early 80’s. It was morning time and we were in a boat with a couple others quickly skipping across the lake to our spot for walleyes. Dad was sitting towards the rear to enjoy a smoother ride. At the bow was Doc Warden who had just packed a fresh chaw of Redman after his AM cup of coffee. As Doc worked and situated his plug he let loose a stream of the tobacco juice and saliva that flew to the back of the boat and hit Dad square in the rum hole. By the time we could get the boat to a stop Dad was several shades of green, none that would remind you of a spring bloom. He of course recovered quickly to enjoy the day and thankfully never grew tired of telling that one. Please share any others you have.
All the best, Tom P

I dated your dad in 1967-68. Your grandfather used to come to NAPA to pick up parts. I worked in the NAPA business office and he sent Jon to get parts a couple times so that your dad and I could meet each other. Your dad was recently home from the service and had a green Plymouth Fury III. I came to Perry to meet your grandmother over the 4th of July week-end. We sat on the hood of the car to watch fireworks. Your dad was a really nice guy. He always treated me like a lady. I have thought of him often over the years. I enjoyed reading about your memories of him. I'm sorry for your loss.

It was absolutely all of my pleasure to be a great friend to Jon. We shared many stories of fun times and not-so-great of times. Visited quite often about Jons parents Cliff and Lois whom I also had the great pleasure of providing care. And from this outcome I have meant his two wonderful sons Tom and Chris, and certainly never to be left out his pride and joy Louie. When we would mention Louie's name Jons face would light up a room!!! Boys please always know how much you were loved by your dad. I do hope you will stay in touch ,you have my number. Best wishes to you and your families, Love JoEllen a.k.a(JoJo) Hunter
