To John's family,
I lived across the road from the Dellinger's in the 1960's and knew all the family. I worked with John when he worked at Drackett,Inc until he went to work across the street to Corn-Nuts. John had a great personality and a great work ethics. My sincere condolences to all the family.

I am so sorry we just found out the news of John passing. My husband John Mason, graduated with John, but I did't know him till we worked together at Fox River Paper Mill. We had many good talks together and I truly missed him when the mill closed. Please accept our condolences.
