A Tribute to the Life of John T

By    

A farewell to John T, the son of Leslie and Millie K
A strong, proud family who struggled from day to day
The life he lived with its ups and downs
He found the Lord, and turned his life around

From teaching his students and leading in community
Being outspoken and tenacious he brought continuity
With his experience and style no need to embellish
For his students and colleagues would envy and relish

He took his talents and used them so very well
Working for others and his school programs exceled
John was a great teacher and mentor extraordinaire,
Some say he guided Washington across the Delaware

With all the wisdom, he shared, he did shine
And he dressed to the hilt most of the time
Thru life’s trials and successes, John lived with style
With wife Ida, then Mary made it all worthwhile

John we will miss you did leave your mark
In the lives of others your love did impart
This life John lived not merely survived
His faith was steady, for his life on High!
