  1. I am very saddened by hearing of the loss of John.
    His love for his family and friends alike will always remain a fond memory of mine.
    John took me with his son (my good friend) to my very first Cubs game.
    It was a memory I will never forget.
    I am glad that John was able to see the Cubs win the World Series.
    I’m sure it was a lifelong dream of his fulfilled.
    My condolences to Linda, John Jr., Katie, Jenny, and all his family and friends.
    He will be greatly missed by all that knew him.
    Rest In Peace Mr. Slobodzian.
    Mike Whiston and family.
