John Stevens on Jul 19, 2019

I am sending all the sympathy and condolences I am able to send to John's family. John was one of the many "lifers" in Wyomissing. I have known him since 1950 and am fortunate to have had him as a good friend, teammate and all-around good guy for so many years. I will remember him fondly for the rest of my life. God bless you John and your family. John Stevens

John was a classmate and always had the best smile and great sense of humor. He will be missed. Prayers go out to his family .

I have fond memories of playing bridge after school with John. He was a formidable opponent. I am so sorry for your loss.

John was a good friend for many years. I regret since moving from Philly to Georgia in 2006 that we did not keep in touch. 25 years of friendship from 1981 - 2006 - then 13 years of no communication. It does not make me feel good. We shared good times and tough times. We counted money at UDLC together for years, served on UDLC committees, served on the Artman Board together for years, etc. I will miss John. May God's PEACE

I am smiling remembering John's sense of humor. He had to fill in for the church financial secretary giving the financial report at the congregational meeting one year and he introduced himself as "the guy who usually carries Bruce's briefcase". John was a good and faithful servant, serving as long as he was able. He was an example to us of GRACE.

My sympathies to the family. I have fond memories of John while working with him on committees at Liberty Lutheran Services. He was always a gentleman. Ellen Yanni
