  1. Dear Chris, I am so sorry for your loss! Please know I am thinking of you and the kids. I have you all in my prayers. “the Babe” (Elizabeth)

  2. Jon has been in our thoughts and hearts since 2010 when he first went on medical leave. We will miss him greatly at work but know he is in a pain-free place where he can “look upon” us now and then. My prayers go out to his family and close friends during this difficult time. May you find solace in the comfort of many happy memories. ~ Suzanne

  3. I was saddened to learn of Jon’s passing today in the Daily Breeze. I met Jon through home brewing and he was a great guy. We had a lot in common – love of good beer, LA Kings, Pearl Jam. He made some of the best beer I have ever tasted. He may be gone but will never be forgotten. Cheers to you my friend – we can have a drink in the brew pub in the sky when my time comes. Heartfelt condolences to all of his family and friends.

  4. Dear Maxie family I will miss my good friend. I started our friendship in the 5th grade all the way through high school. Please be sure to advise me of any services. Sincerely, Michael Mentges 1721 -1 st Street M.B e-mail:
