John was like part of the family for so many years while he was growing up. When he was older, although we didn't see as much of any of you, we still consider you all family as well as friends.  My prayers go out to you at this time, and hope you can just remember the good times.  I know he was a great friend, Husband, Father, and Grandfather.  My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

My sincere condolences to the family of John Nelson.  He was a good friend and my manager for a number of years.  He was always fair and honest, a man with integrity, morals and one that reflected how much he valued his family.  He will be missed.  I truly valued our working relationship and have missed him since I moved.  I was truly saddened to hear of his passing.  May those of you in his family be blessed and comforted.

We wish to extend our very deepest sympathy to John's family.  We have known John for all of the 30+ years he worked at Sears.  The lovely  picture of him in the paper certainly depicts his lively personality.  He was a great guy;  we will definitely miss him; he has gone from our lives much too soon.

I grew up in the Sears tech shop where John was the manager. It was also where I had my first real job while in high school. Knowing John as a kid playing around in the shop, then evolving into an employee was a great experience for me. John was very kind and really made me feel valued as a young employee in the workforce. He showed appreciation to employees as he worked into through transitions at the office. Outside of the workplace, he was no different. As I grew up, he treated me with respect and was happy to take a moment to ask me how I was doing while I was finishing school in Pocatello. I was happy to step away from whatever I was doing if I saw John to say hi because no matter what, he always gave me encouragement to keep achieving my goals. He truly cared about those around him and will be greatly missed. My sincerest condolences go out to the Nelson family for their loss.
