    Condolences to John’s family during this difficult time. I was a class mate of John and always admired his collection of car and knowledge of the motor industry. I will miss John’s music memorabilia on Facebook. John was a very kind and thoughtful person and will be missed by many. God gained a great guy and we are left with many memories to share with others during our journey through life. Rest in Peace my friend and many of us will be blessed to see you again.

    John and I started Kindergarten together at the Old Pacific country school. We continued through grade school at the Lincoln country school through 8th grade the high school. We were neighbors growing up and spent countless hours ‘roaming’ the countryside. My brothers and I were all similar in age with the Osborne boys. I will miss John. We didn’t see each other in the later years but the friendship was still there. It was a childhood well spent with fond memories.
