Our deepest condolences and prayers are with the family at this tragic time.
Jon ,you have left a mark on all of our hearts. You always gave me a hug & a kiss on my forehead, every time I seen you, that I will never forget!! You always made sure to tell me you have my back, & Let you know if I ever needed you for anything!! (Mostly, if I was having men problems!) I will never forget these little things as they meant the most to me!! You were taken from us way to soon Jon. But God called on you for a reason, a reason we may never understand. I love you cousin, you will forever be missed!! Love always, Bry
I can only imagine the pain and suffering you all are experiencing at this time. I am praying for you all!! Love always Bry
So sorry and shocked to hear of Jon’s passing. Mike and I send our deepest sympathy and prayers to the family. Always enjoyed playing cards with him and just such a good person!
Hard to believe you are gone Jon. Will miss your smiling face, and the fact that you always treated my wife Sandy, my Mom Norma, and myself with respect. My Mom, after attending functions at your parents’ house, always said what a fine young man that Jon was.
Terra and family…I am so sorry for your loss. I remember all the good times I had at your house growing up. I ran into Jon a few months ago and we talked and laughed about the good old days. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers.
Rest in peace my friend. The hours we spent together with the poker team will never be forgotten. You lived your life like you played your cards. Sometimes you bluffed other times you reeled them in. Even when your life was down you were cheerful. You were a good friend. I will think of you often.
Sad to hear of Jon passing away. RIP
Uncle Gary and Aunt Vicki
We will miss all of Jon’s special little teases, and always trying to hide his smile.
Our family chain is broken again only to be mended together by our Heavenly Father.
You know the mystery and special love in Heaven now and we look forward to seeing you again someday. I’m sure you and Grandpa Rex and Woody will be cheering on the Buckeyes together.
You were loved.

Sending our condolences from the Winke family. My brothers and I were friends with the Kings when they owned the motel out on Rt. 20 in Fremont. I was probably only 6-8 years old but I remember playing with them and remember I had a crush on Jon:) My mother and Karen were good friends. I am so sorry to hear of his passing, especially at such a young age. May God be with the family, may he Rest In Piece.
