Jon was very
artistic and found joy in music, sketching, and woodworking.
He also loved reading and traveling. Jon had the gift of
making the most of every day. He lived life in the moment, on
his terms. He was a free spirit. Jon had many plans and dreams
for the future which were on their way to becoming a reality.
Jon had a special
love for life, his family and friends. Although he did not
leave this world on his terms, he passed with the dignity and
pride of leading a life well lived. He made us so proud. We
are forever changed for having him in our lives, though not
for nearly long enough.
Jon, it was truly a
privilege and honor to have you as our son, brother and
friend. We will always love you and cherish the time we had
with you. May you find peace in the arms of God.
