John Ronquest, he was a loving & kind neighbor to my husband, my daughter and I. When we lived next door to John & Karen, I remember him working on refinishing and sanding a table and chairs that we would later sit out back on while we would chat and watch their puppies. Ron and Karen got married in that home and I felt lucky to be a part of it, as they asked me to take pictures. Ron and Karen were there for me while my husband was deployed to Iraq, they got our daughter her baby book and the cutest stuffed dog she named Bella, which “Katie”, as John called our daughter, carried with her for a few years even after we moved out of state. We have never forgotten John’s kindness to us, he will be missed.
