Albrecht Grocery Stores ( Acme Clicks) for 23 years as Plain Clothes Security then Cleveland Clinic Akron General Hospital as Security for 22 years.
John has been a servant of the Lord for 48 years. John's gift was to make people smile, feel valued and loved and he did that so very well. His motive was pure and to show the love of Jesus without focusing on himself.
John handed out pennies with either a cross or an Angel cut-out, to those he knew and loved, those who needed a smile or just a complete stranger. He loved walking up someone wearing a military hat or jacket and thank them for their service. He would often pay for a meal for someone in a restaurant without them knowing who did it.
John's farewell message written before he left this world:
Do not shed tears of sorrow, but tears of joy. For I am in Heaven now with my Lord and Savior Jesus talking about you.
I did not choose to be a common man, but as common as I can be.
"I shall not pass this way again. I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good thing therefore, that I can door kindness I can show to any fellow human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again."
A Celebration of John's Life will be July 10 @ 4pm at his church Kenmore Community Church of the Nazarene 2025 12th St. SW Akron OH 44314 Pastor Terry Passmore officiating .
