We were sad to hear about John passing away. John was definitely a character that was not duplicated. We considered John a good friend and he will really be missed. I can already see John and my father n law (Doug) drinking coffee together and still telling stories at the Sykes in the sky. Our prayers are with you and we sure understand how hard it is when they are gone.

I was sad to hear of John's passing. He was a loyal friend and customer of my parents for years at Sykes' Grocery. He had such an engaging smile and I enjoyed seeing him and Phyliss when I come to Kalispell to visit. My prayers are with you all at this time. MJ Inman
