    Deepest Sympathy, Carol Schiro

    To John’s family – With deepest sympathy as you remember John. He was a great friend, co-worker, and interesting individual. We spent a lot of time working together at Green Bay Packaging as well as building and sharing great memories at the hunting cabin “up north” during deer seasons! His “Irish spirit” will live on forever. He will be missed!

  3. Geri Zeibert says:

    I’m so glad I had a chance to say goodbye, John. You were as irascible and entertaining as always. I will miss your check in emails and singing off-key birthday calls! Fly free.

  4. Bruce Goodnough says:

    John touched a lot of hearts.Mine included. He will be missed.

  5. Marie Sheehy says:

    Cousin John, I will remember you as a loyal traditionalist and straight-shooter. You were the patriarch of the remaining Drislane clan and you will be sorely missed. I know you are with Elsie and John and the rest of the Drislanes….please hug them all for me. God Bless you and thanks for being the kind of man you were. All my love, cousin Marie

  6. Jack Schimick says:

    I am deeply saddened. John and I go way back to the Chicago Jack & Jill club in the ’70’s. We have talked to each other at least twice a year for the last few years. He was a great friend and a stand-up guy!! I will miss him a lot.

    Johnny, you’ve left me the oldest of the family in the U.S. I remember Auntie Elsie making breakfast for all of us after Sunday mass at St Angela’s. I remember the parties at our house on Monitor with all your buds including Joe Gunnell and Tom Reynolds and all Hen’s friends. You brought all your swabbie buds home when you were at boot camp at Great Lakes. You never got to be the pilot you wanted to be, but stayed close by being an airplane mechanic. During the Bay of Pigs you were flown to Guantanamo. What a wonderful job you did building the rock chimney in the Twin Lakes house and how much you enjoyed the sauna you put in. You so loved Caetlin and Shannon. You talked Caetlin into disobeying her dad by riding without seatbelts in the old car you renovated. You teased me mercilessly about munching on “Bambi”. You did all my laundry when I was there taking care of Hen. You planted white lavender in her honor because she loved it so much. You loved your mother dearly and wouldn’t get rid of her dining room set, “it was Ma’s”. You were the classic old grouch with the heart of gold and I will miss you more than words can say.
