Hello friends Judy and Joanne and Johnny and family. So sorry to hear about Brother John. John was like a good father and good friend to me, for many years. We sure did a lot of hay and wood work together. I really appreciate John's help, with delivering the Masonic Christmas fruit baskets, and for the trips to the State Fair. I really appreciate the many meals we enjoyed together, and also for your many homecooked meals, Judy. We all will treasure our many fond memories of John. May the good Lord bless you all.

John Lusk For eight years I worked for or with all the Lusk brothers Bob (Herman), Allen (Sarge), Don, Kenny (Chief) and John. Most of my pipeline time was spent with John. We worked long hours, laid miles of pipe, played countless games of basketball, ate lots of food, attended church every Sunday, started our families and laughed a lot. The work ethic that John instilled in me shall remain until I die. The accomplishments we achieved will always be a great memory and No, Jack, we never did four miles in one day! The experiences and knowledge that I acquired are truly the equivalent of a PHD. Thank you my friend. God bless the John Lusk family and give them all the peace and comfort they need. Until we kick it off again don’t just stand there, do something! Jim Newcomb
