I just today learned of Jonh's passing. I am so sorry for your loss. I remember Jonh as a friend who was always smiling and never at a loss of something funny to say or a funny story to tell. I never saw him frowning or sad. He will be remembered.

Dear Mary Zoe, Sarah, & Sandy, I am so very sorry for the sad news of John's passing. He was one of my very favorite cousins. Growing up, whenever I knew we had a family gathering, I'd always find out if "John & Zoe were coming", because he'd always have that infectious smile, and have several good jokes to tell. He reminded me in such a manner, as my dad. God bless you in the coming months, and may the Holy Spirit give each of you much peace & comfort. I'm so sorry I was unable to make it over, but was fighting one of my severe migraines Monday. John will be sorely missed. Mama & Mary Lynn also send their condolences. We love y'all, Benny B.

It was my privilege to know and have John Dell as a school and church friend in Wichita Falls. He was a class president through high school and we were in the same fraternity at the University of Texas in Austin. He was a natural leader, good person, and lots of fun to be with. I shall always treasure his friendship and memories of him. Ray Farabee

I was blessed. I knew John for over forty years, fair weather and foul. There never was a time that he couldn't see the best side of a problem or a person. I met John in Denver back in 1968 and we connected immediately. There are so many memories that come flooding back to me from places - London, Tahiti, Hawaii and his beloved Louisiana. He never held the fact that I was a Yankee against me, rather, he seemed to get a kick out helping me to straighten out my thinking on anything concerning that late lamented war. And, darned if he didn't go and improve my handicap on the golf too he called it a Coors-advantage all the while relieving me of surplus cash - and for the record - I never minded. He took great joy in life and there never was a time that I didn't feel glad to see him. He was gentle with his friends - respectful of their needs and attentive to their wishes. I for one will think of him today at the helm of a boat - outward bound from San Diego into the setting sun. Farewell old friend; fair winds always at your back. Requiscat en Pace. Fredo

John was elected president and favorite of our senior class at Wichita Falls, Tx. Senior high. No one was more fun or more beloved. He touched all our lives in special ways. Much love to you, Zoe and to your family.

Sarah, your Dad brought many smiles to my face back during my ULM years. I always looked forward to visiting with him. My prayers are with you and your family.
Anita Pipes left a message on March 24, 2012:
I will always remember John as a loving husband and a doting father and grandfather who loved his family dearly. He had a love for life and a sparkle in his eyes. I spoke w/a couple a few years ago who attended Sunday school class w/him and they spoke of his love for Jesus Christ. I know that we will see him again. He is perfectly well and whole. He just went ahead a little early. Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted. Love to all, Anita
