May he rest in peace knowing his wonderful family will keep him in their hearts, as all of us who knew him, Betty, John, and Tom.

Our condolences. My dad Gerald Rosema, will be eager to catch up with him once he's greeted all the former family members at Christ's feet. My sister lives in Ella Mae's house (on the channel) that he helped engineer. The buttresses in their basement, to hold back the force of the sand, stand as a reminder of his strong faith and quality professionalism.

What are wonderful Christian man. We will miss John but we know where he is and how happy he is to be with his beloved Bette.
He was the last of a brave and courageous generation, the likes of which we probably will not see again anytime soon.
God Bless you John.
