Very sad to read the news of John Dullea. My father, Harold C. Jennings served as Greenville’s Chief of Police for decades - many with John as city manager. There was mutual respect there during stressful, visionary, and challenging times. Our Jennings family send deep condolences to the Dullea family with appreciation for his public service and support of Greenville’s outstanding police dept. RIP, Sir. Give my father and mother, our love.

I had not known John but a short 8 months, he and Lib made me feel like family. I saw a man who loved his wife dearly and his family. I was amazed at how together John was even at 94yrs old! I hope Lib and his children find peace in knowing John is in a much better place. I will forever cherish the memories of this unique man! I will truly miss you John!

I first met John Dullea when he was the city manager for my hometown of Burlington, Iowa. I was in high school and while serving as the Student Council President I worked with Mr. Dullea on youth policies. He was a marvelous collaborator and valued the input of our high school students. Burlington’s city government would serve ALL of its citizens. I went off to college and lost track of him when I heard he was leaving Burlington. Years after that, I’m a newly minted graduate student, looking for a college position and received one at Furman University. To my surprise, I quickly learned that Mr. Dullea was Greenville’s city manager. I found this reassuring, knowing that Greenville was in good hands. Rest In Peace, John, and thank you for your services.
