Memories Timeline


  1. I did not know John well, however, I always looked forward to seeing him at family gatherings in the South Dakota Black Hills and in Denver. Marguerite (June Thode’s youngest daughter).

  2. John was a kind hardworking man and my mom Teresa loved being a part of the Central Seal family. When she was sick those 3 months and upon her death John and Rob were so supportive of us. Thinking of you all.

  3. An amazing Patriarch to a Beautiful Family. Praying for you as you you navigate these hardest days. xo

  4. Loved seeing cousin John more often at recent family weddings. He was a gentle soul with a wry humor and a willingness to catch up on many years of being too far apart. Our prayers are with his family at this difficult time. And we know John is at peace. Love, Karen
