  1. We were saddened to hear of John’s passing. He was a good man with a kind heart. When John and Willy were on the family farm as with my relatives on our farm, I fondly remember the good times we shared when we could get away and gather in Custer. I particularly remember stuffing as many people as we could in a car and travelling into Billings to watch Mustang baseball games. The fun and memories we shared are priceless.
