Dear Family, My parents were Noyd and Dorothy (VanGuilder) Chappel. Jack was a favorite cousin of my mother's and I remember attending Jack and Marilyn's wedding in Pleasantville, Pa. many years ago. I was only 9, but I remember how beautiful Marilyn looked in her gown on the steps outside the church. All those Grand Valley memories were precious to my Mom and she passed those along to my sisters and I. We are so sorry for your loss and so appreciate Jim for keeping in touch with us. In Christ's Love, Debra (Chappel) Nelson

Kathy and I have been truly honored and privileged to know John, and to call him friend. A truly great man who entertained angels, and one of the best friends I've ever been privileged to have! Randy M. Donelson

We all thought so much of our uncle/great-uncle Jack, as we called him! We loved his kindness, him telling us his stories from childhood, and of course, his sense of humor! I can think of a lot of great times we all had with uncle Jack....Great memories and many laughs!! He was a great Christian man & that reflected in his life! We loved our uncle Jack! You're at peace now & no more suffering...Rest In Peace! From your nieces, nephews, great-nieces & great-nephews from PA & IL

Marilyn and family, we are so very sorry for this great loss in your lives. When we think of John, we think of a faithful man who had a great sense of humor. We will miss him. We are praying for God's peace and comfort during this difficult time. Marilyn, may you find comfort in knowing he is in the presence of the Lord, and that you will be with him again one day. Love you.
