As Terry Harrimon suggested, our early years in Sheridan were special. I picture Jon in the green Cubs uniform throwing left handed against my Rams team. In high school our opponents were happy to see Jon with his slow curve balls after seeing Jeff Gerlach's fastballs, but they couldn't hit either of them. Jon always had a kind word, was always a supportive type person. I regret that I lost contact with him since high school. I mourn his loss and the loss of his father, Kline in 1991.

Sorry to hear of a fellow classmates death. From what I remember he was a great guy and to have served in the army... just makes it more of a honor to have known him.

It seems like yesterday that we were having fun at Sheridan Elementary. We played sports together, we laughed our way through Central Montcalm and then moved on in our careers. I will miss the stories that Jon could always remember. He left us way to early.
