  1. I’m sorry to hear of John’s passing. May his family be comforted by God’s grace and may he be at peace with the Lord.

  2. John, You will be missed by everyone. If you get the chance up there please say hello to Jim Wahl for me. You are remembered in our prayers.

  3. May God give you, for every storm a rainbow, for every tear a smile, for every care a promise, and a blessing in each trial. For every problem life sends, A faithful fiend to share, For every sign, a sweet song. And an answer for each prayer. I am sure John is running to the light to meet his savior.
    My deepest sympathy to the Rooney family.

  4. I was saddened to recently learn of John’s passing from a mutual friend. It was always a big deal for me when he and my next door neighbor, Tom Balazy, took the time to goof around with a little kid. Rest in Peace, John.
