I maybe met John once or twice…but I heard so many stories about him through my friend Kathleen…he was one of her late husband Hugh’s dear friends…but what John did for Kathleen after Hugh passed was what made me know he was one of the best!…she said she could call on him for questions or anything… and he was always willing to lend a hand and helped her so much.…I’m so very sorry to hear of his passing….many prayers for comfort and peace to his family.

John was about 10 years older than me. I was a little intimidated the first time I met him because I was so new to the business. Did not take long to understand that he was a vey nice man and loads of fun. Super smart and quick witted. I am sorry that he is no longer with us. I am sure he will be missed by many.

I 1st met John on a seismic crew in about 1992. I listened and I have still been listening! Of course I laughed a lot at his stories and discussions about the oil industry. He loved this industry and all the science that went into it. including geology, geophysics and engineering. Many a time he looked at my seismic interpretations and would gladly give input and suggestions. However make no mistake he was "Opinionated"! Yet I always looked forward to seeing and hearing his voice. Our last visit was in July. We visited for 3 days and discussed so many things. I did not know it was my last visit with him. I will remember that and him fondly.

I will miss John, especially at the weekly "Safety Meetings" at the bar Thursdays. I admired his friendly demeanor and outgoingness as well as his sage advice, but the best was his story telling!

So sorry Wilma. John was such a good friend of my Father, Gene Stroud. He always looked forward to your visits at the Morehouse reunions. I could listen to Dad, John, Calvin and Uncle Butch tell stories for hours and listen to them laugh and remember the good ol’ days. Of course, there were always a beer or two that was drank during these stories and a few innocent razzing about who did what. It never mattered that the stories were sometimes repeated over the years and usually some of the details from year to year were forgotten. Those are the kind of friendships that other guys seems to look for their whole lives, these guys had it. John will always hold a special place in my heart, as a child he was a larger than life friend of Dad’s from Texas and as I grew older he became a friend of mine and we always looked forward to his visits. I always wanted to thank him for being such a good friend to us, I sure hope he knew. He will be missed, just makes me miss my Dad that much more. Luckily for me, I will always have the stories and I will also continue to hear their laughter and I will carry that for the rest of my days.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
