We remember all the great help with our cars!
Time at church. Johns sermons. His jokes and laughter. His planing for ministries. Those crazy dare devil pictures on Facebook. The memories are too numerous. Maggie was ever patient with him. Sometimes he stretched it, but with a good woman behind him he has able to minister to many people that in turn they spread the word of Jesus Christ. He walked and talked the great Commission!
Bless this family to continue the work.

Maggie, my heart goes out to you and your family. I know you will miss him so much. I cried and prayed for you as I know I do not have to pray for John as he is in our loving Saviors arms singing His praises. I am so sorry. As you know, I love both of you. If I can help you in any way, please don't hesitate to call me. God bless you. Joy Bailey

I was honored to have known John and have him as a customer for many years.  I was always impressed with his honesty and upbeat attitude.  After we both retired, we kept up with each other via Facebook.  I was so saddened to read in another friend's post about John passing away.  To Ms Maggie and the rest of his family, please accept Brenda and my most sincere condolences in the loss of John.  He will be long remembered for the kind things he did for others and the example he set.

Dear Maggie and family,  I can't think of words except you Maggie and John touched my heart... There will be a void in our hearts for a long time as John was a special person.. I know he is rejoicing in Heaven but we are selfish and wish he was here with us.  God Bless you Maggie and if there is anything I can do  please do not hesitate to call.  Love in Christ

John was always there to help and encourage...also full of fun and a wit that often surprized! His heart for ministry and service will be missed, but he has left a trail of disciples of Christ all across the world. John will forever be our friend, our mentor and our example of a servant's heart.
Jackie Jones left a message on December 31, 2020:
I worked for Mr. John at the service center. I do not believe I have ever met a finer man than John. He treated everyone exaxtly as we all should. John truly made this world a better place. I cant imagine a world that he isnt in. Without a doubt he left his mark in a lot of peoples lives. Mine included! Gone but never forgotten. I count it a blessing and an honor to have known Mr. John and the Kubia Family. 
Don and Linda Maycroft left a message on December 31, 2020:
John and Jack were the ones who came to our house many years ago and led us to the Lord.  We will be forever grateful for the love he showed to us over the years and the many wonderful Sunday School lessons he taught.  We will miss him very much.
