  1. I have fond memories of my cousin John & his brother Tom when my brother Rich and I used to go to Gages Lake as kids on the weekends. RIP my friend and hope to see you on the other side. 🙏🏻🙏🏻

  2. The Kolar’s were our neighbors in Round Lake. Our children grew up together. It is heartbreaking to learn of John’s passing and I send my love, thoughts, and prayers to his sons … Rob, Kevin and Christopher. Many memories.

  3. Growing up, I remember Uncle John as a man of few words, but very sweet and dependable… He was a familiar face in a crowd to show support and never missed a family gathering. We are very sorry for Kevin, Rob and Chris, your wives and your children. Your dad and grandpa will be painfully missed.
