I'm still in awe that this happened. There are no words to say to let the family know how heartbreaking this is. John was our landlord in one of the houses we lived in at Sentinel. My thoughts and prayers go out to the King family.

I'll never forget helping John change bearings on the disk, or driving the Steiger for a while. Walking into the cafe with John and having the WHOLE place going silent.  So very very sorry.

I am in shock. I am devastated. I just keep thinking this can’t be real. “Johnny” was in my life even before I was old enough to know it. He meant the world to me – and our whole family. No one has to tell you how selfless he was, or how special he was. But I want you to know how much I appreciate the way he touched my life, how he cared for our family without question, and how he was always there for us without hesitation.
Terri, Katrina, Jamie, Whitney, Nancy, and Kristi, I wish I could be there in person to share with you the same kind of support Johnny – and you – always gave me. Please know my heart is with you. I pray for each of you, the comfort, peace, and strength you need. I know your husband, father, and brother is receiving an unbelievable reward that he so richly deserves.

We are at a lost for words. We have cut Johns wheat crop the last five years or so. It was always a pleasure to talk with him on the phone and help get the wheat crop to the bin. He will truly be missed and our thoughts and prayers go out to his whole family. He was one of a kind, we will miss him but Heaven has gained him. If there is anything we can do please let us know. We pray God will bless your entire family in their hour of need. God bless

I’m still in shock. Next to God, you were Terri’s rock.
