To all family and friends; Jon's wishes were for family and friends to remember as he was before he got I'll. He didn't want anyone to see him I'll and weak. Jon was a very private and proud person. He wanted to let his family know he did love them and was very proud of who they have become. Thank you all for all the good wishes and prayers. Just know Jon loved his family very much.

Spent many a summer's day hanging out at Jon's "shack" on the lake with the Rome City crowd, I loved that infectious smile of his, you never knew if he was up to something nefarious or not! Loved the times spent with Jon! RIP
