  1. Pat and sons: There is a compassionate God in heaven who see, who cares, who comforts. May you feel His presence as you grieve the loss of your dearly beloved John. Our prayers are with you. The Myers family

  2. John Dydo was a brilliant mind, great businessman, loving father and a fine loyal friend. Many of us at the office will miss him very much.

  3. John was a great help and friend at the Lyonsdale Biomass plant during the 1990’s. Please accept my condolences.

  4. I’m sorry Pat and John had to go through the ordeal of fighting his disease during the past several years. John and I had been colleagues since 1986, but more than that, we were friends. In fact, I have had more lunches with John than any other person. I miss him.

  5. God bless John. God bless Pat and their sons. It was a joy to work with John on the Long Beach Emergency Repowering Project and other projects over the years. Peace be with you.

  6. John was my best friend in college. I have many great memories of the good times we had together during our years at the University of Michigan. John and I had class together, studied together and partied together. One of my best memories was the car trip we took together the summer after we graduated. We drove from Michigan to Yellowstone and back, with no plans, camping whereever we ended up for the night. We were two guys with no care in the world…those were some of the best days in my life. With heartfelt sympathy. Steve & Vicky Hart

  7. I am so sorry for your loss. I was a good friend of his through high school and his years at U of M. I lost track of him after our reunion in 1983. I would like your permission to let our classmates know of his passing. He was a kind and funny man, with many friends. If it would not be too intrusive, can you tell me his cause of passing. I’m sure there will be people that would like to know. Once again my deepest apologies for this late condolence note, but I just discovered his passing yesterday.
