Memories Timeline


  1. Barbara, As you know Jon and I go way back to kindergarten together and he may have told you some of our shenanigans. Jack

  2. CandleImageJon and I met in August, 1992 at LaRocheand his wife Barbara, such a wonderful lady she is, kept Jon on the straight and narrow.
    Jon was a pal, a friend and professionally, a mentor. He helped me so much and showed me some ropes that I never knew.
    We would get together and start Texas BBQ brisket for parties at 5:00 am with a few beers to get going. What a great time!
    Jon you will sorely be missed by my family. Thanks for all the outstanding memories. We’ll be together again some day.
    Requiescat in pace Domini nostri Iesu Christi

  3. CandleImageBarbara,
    I want you to know that we are thinking of you and sending our love every moment. I remember the first time I met Uncle Jon, he was so fun, kind and engaging and he made me feel instantly welcome and a part of the family. I am grateful for all the memories but I am most grateful for how he made me feel, making people feel loved and connected was one of his many gifts. We will all miss him deeply. Love to you, Stacey

  4. Uncle Jon was the best! I will always remember the trips he and Barbara made to Arkansas for the holidays and other visits. He was a kid a heart and played and cut up with us when we were young. We would play basketball together and take walks in the woods with the dogs. As I got older he became a great resource to discuss business and strategy. He was fun, engaging and always had great one liners like “don’t take anything for granted”. We will miss him greatly!

  5. Barbara: Jon and I met in the early 60’s when we started working for the Armour Chemical Group in Chicago. The office was on Wacker Drive and that’s where he met you. Our friendship grew over the years and we both ended up as regional managers for USS and LaRoche, the companies that bought Armour. I have many fond memories of working with him and seeing him at meetings and outings. He was a wonderful guy and will be missed. John Anderson
