I still remember him from elementary school. His mom and my mom were Room Mothers together. He had a great smile and a gentle personality and I remember him being so kind. May he rest in peace and rise in glory.

John was so very courageous and ruled his roost for sure. John loved spending time going around Helmer Myre coming out by Blazing Star ,with a sigh of relief I would see his smiling face approaching his house. Many laughs, cooking the best corn casserole and so many lessons learned .Much love and prayers to the Kingstrom family. RIP John
