    Travis, of untold countless coworkers, you were one of the few truly worth their salt in this world. I grew up the grandson of fresh off the boat, Finnish immigrants and without a doubt you’ve demonstrated SISU every step & turn of the way. I have nothing but respect, admiration and condolences to esteem/heap upon you, and your family during these trying times. I know the RAMINGERS have the fortitude & honor to see things through……no matter how rough they may seem at the darkest of times….

    My condolences to the family. John grew up just a few miles from me and ended up in the US Military as did I altho we were 8 years apart. We both served in the USAF for many years and I’m sure the family feels the loss.

    We are so sorry to hear of John, Jackie’s passing. We are neighbors from where he grew up and knew him as he was growing up. We knew him and his father well, as they lived on a neighboring farm. We were saddened to hear that he suffered so….and we are appreciative of his contributions as he served our country.
