John and Faun Aleen were very fine loving people who we considered good friends. He presided at the wedding of our daughter and her first husband and baptized at least one of our grandchildren. He was also our son and family's landlord for many years and always so good to his family. He will be missed. I know Faun Aleen is so happy to be reunited with him. Del and Janet Peck

John's generous spirit, compassion and kindness will be missed. My deepest sympathy to his family. For those who had the pleasure of knowing him and Faun Aleen, we know the world is a little brighter because they were here and in our lives. As a very young Mom, John and Faun Aleen offered me encouragement and grace in a sometimes harsh world. I am grateful I had the joyful pleasure of knowing them and worshiping within the walls of Hillcrest.

I have a lot of good memories of your Dad and Mom and watching you boys grow up! Your Dad married John and I! You probably remember me but John and I lived in the rent next to 44! Sorry for your loss but there is doubt he is in a better place! Jean Studebaker Mooneyham

Dr Tranbarger and his wife were so kind to my mother, Mary Farris. His mother, Mae, and my mother were good friends. Dr Tranbarger and his wife would pick up both of them and take them on outings. I remember my mother talking about how thoughtful he was and how considerate he was of his mother. He really impressed mother with his kindness. Although I never met him, I will always be grateful to him for that.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
