I’m so sad to hear of John’s passing. He was not only a dear friend of both of my parents, but he became a part of our extended Brininstool “family”. John had very wise words that helped me through one of the worst experiences, and I’ll never forget his advice. He was a good man. He is missed. Kat Brininstool Carter

What wonderful memories I have of good times with John and Marinell over the years. We were in dance club together and took a fun trip to Ruidoso in 2004. I lost my husband John in September. I understand how you must feel over losing your dad. Love and God's blessings to you all

A very nice service. So glad they were able to show it live. Such good thoughts and memories about your dad. I know you all will miss him dearly. I know what you are going through and there will always be a void that can never be filled.

Although I haven’t seen John in a number of years, I knew him as an honest, straight shooting kind of guy. He always was a good friend and business acquaintance. Prayers for his family and please know John will be remembered.

NOW, I know why John seemed bigger-than-life to my little 5 year old eyes! Hauling livestock at age 14- no wonder he seemed a person of authority. Handling livestock would do that. His sister, Frances, and I have been friends since I moved to Big Lake at age 5. The Glidewell's were an important part of my growing up in Big Lake. He has lived a good life. Vaya con Dios, John.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
