Jenny, Andrea and family, I used to be the family stylist and have been John’s barber for 20 years. It’s been a privilege to get to know and become friends with John through the years. He loved his family and our mutual friend (Russ Mundy) they were men’s men, kindred souls. I’m so sorry for your loss... he will be missed. Godspeed John 🇺🇸🙏

Jenny, Andrea, and Family, Bill called me yesterday to tell me the news. Our whole family thought so much of John. My sister Margie and husband Mark Craig and myself went to school with John. He was always so kind and so naturally witty. So glad Bill got to talk to him this past Christmas Eve morning. Bill is a good friend to John for many years and always would come back from his visits saying John & Jenny salt of the earth. We all know John's service to his country - a very special person and will be missed. Take care Jenny, Pat Pugh Slagle, Margie Pugh Craig, Mark, and Bill Pugh
