John was a kind and thoughtful gentleman.He was personaly encouraging to me at important times in my life.I always thought of him as a servant leader, intelligent but humble.He was interested in what others were doing and was quick to share a positive comment.He was someone to emulate. Our community was blessed to have him among us and is poorer without him. God bless the Shealy family.
