Success is measured by someone who lives well, laughs often and loves much. Someone who has earned the respect of all mankind, who has accomplished his task, who has left the world better than he found it, who never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it, who looked for the good in others and given them the best he had, whose life was an inspiration, whose memories a benediction. John was all this and more to those who knew him and loved him. Our sympathy to Gay and family.

Carl and Jan Asp on July 26th, 2015 - 11:33 am said:
When I arrived at UTK in 1967 for an interview as a Professor in the Department and the Hearing and Speech Center in Knoxville, John was the first person to greet me with a warm southern hospitality. We talked for hours; John told me many stories of the South including "hunkering down"; we spent hours talking. After this warm welcome from John, I told Dr Hal Luper that I accepted his offer to be a Professor at UTK. In the following years, John and I always found time to sit and talk at ASHA and other conventions. I always considered John as my special friend and always enjoyed being with him. Jan and I are sad to hear of John's passing, and feel fortunate to enjoyed being friends of Gay and John. Let's all celebrate John's life. Carl and Jan Asp.

Threse and Gene Hammond on July 24th, 2015 - 4:41 pm said:
Gay, for Dr. Bob, Threse and I have broken hearts for you and the loss of your beloved John. First meeting you in Nashville and last seeing you at Bob's celebration of life we have loved you both. John's words of humor, love and praise for Bob brought a special comfort to us that meant so much to us at that time. Our prayers are that your tears will turn to warm smiles of wonderful memories.

A couple of my fondest memories of Aunt Bev: her trying to teach me how to play the base guitar ( she has unbelievable patience) and also the time Craig and I visited, I was pregnant with Evan. Every morning she served me oatmeal and grapefruit off her tree, cut up in beautiful little sections. What a wonderful person. Will miss her visits to Rockford Mi. With Bonnie. Hugs to all of you!!!!!
