Wanda & entire family:

I am still in denial that my greatest mentor in the Technical College system has passed. John is the reason I came to Mid-State and ended up to be part of a wonderful community of professionals and their families. I followed John's footsteps in several areas.

One area was the Business Professionals of America student organization (formally Office Education Association). John always had a truly successful chapter in Stevens Point. We traveled to many state and national conferences as chapter advisers. The mother of all trips was to Corpus Christi, Texas, back in the early 80s. Four WI chapters contracted with Lamers Bus Company to drive our students and we advisers to Corpus Christi. Twenty-six hours non-stop on a school bus. John had a great sense of humor and with his jokes, kept us entertained many of those hours. In addition, John was also MC for the Awards Program at our state BPA conference for a number of years - a position at which I never thought I could be successful until John mentored and shared his secrets. He turned the position over to me.

John was the reason I accepted a position at Mid-State Technical College in Marshfield. After a couple years, he accepted the position as Marshfield Campus Dean and was my supervisor (yikes! As Campus Dean, he mentored me in my Business Dept supervisor role at Marshfield, and little did I know at the time, paving my way to his position.

John was a significant influence in my life - both professionally and personally. He was the one who taught me how to dive while spending time at the home of John and Jo Close. Always pushing me forward, John was a great person and mentor. I am glad he introduced me to his family. Wanda, you are always welcoming. Peggy, you always brightened the room - in fact, I think it was your space that I was given when I stayed?? David, your energy was unlimited. As I would always just "pop" in for a visit, I never was able to spend much time with Charlene or Kerry. I was able, however, to keep tabs on you all through the infamous Christmas poem.

I am thankful to John for sharing his talents and secrets to success. In his years as a professional and as a friend, he has paved the way for many people. God rest his intuitive and inspiring soul.
