"Johnny" Guerrero (as known in High School) was a fun loving and caring guy! We're so sorry, we just received the newsletter about our classmate. Johnny was in our class at Hayden High School in Topeka, Ks. We are sorry for your loss. Just wanted you to know that others far away and from a long time ago, still care about a treasured classmate.

Dear Miss Linda, Although I have had the pleasure of meeting you and Mr. John just a few times, I feel like I know you both so well. As the husband of my wonderful daughter Jennifer, your son Sean has displayed unbelievable courage, strength, and tender compassion for my family. As you know, he recently stood strong and helped my Mom step from this world into the next, something I could not do. The tenderness, sweetness, warmth and compassion he displayed that day and every day is your reflection, Miss Linda. The bravery and fearless endurance: a replica of Mr. John. Sean and Kim are beyond blessed to be raised by parents that exemplify benevolence and altruism, a true testament to you and Mr. John. I’m praying for your heart to heal and I hope to see you very soon, Love, Cindi

To say that you have known John is saying that you saw his smile and Linda smiling right behind him..My wife and i met John and Linda many years ago at Northern Little League when i was coaching Sean in baseball along with his other coach Dan Dickens.. We had a special group then along with a special group of parents, among those was John and Linda..Kim even tried to coach my daughter in cheer leading for the Packers..John you were special then and are still today..You touched many lives in so many wonderful ways. Heaven gained a special man in you.. You will be missed dearly. Ed and Donna Cross

Linda I am still in shock" I will forever be grateful for all the memories and days we spent. John took 2 young boys and helped me to make sure they stayed on the right path while their dad was overseas and we couldn’t of known anyone better. We are forever grateful for the friendship. We love you and your family. Juanita and Melvin Knighton
Juanita Gilman left a message on July 27, 2020:
Linda, I was so very shocked to learn of John’s passing. It was my pleasure to meet him at Orchard View when y’all were there to visit Shirley. I always enjoyed talking to you and him. I believe I shared with y’all that Sean was the EMT who transported Garry from home to the hospital several times. The last time was in January 2018. He was unable to return home after that hospitalization and instead became an Orchard View resident. Having lost Garry in January 2020, I know how you feel. You and John had been married a year less than us. We were blessed with wonderful husbands. Please know I have been and will continue to pray for you and your family. I pray you will feel the mighty power of our loving God as he comforts you during the days ahead. If there is anything I can do for you, please do not hesitate to call.

Thank you for taking interest in a young child when you didn’t have to. Thank you for the random jobs you let me work when you didn’t have to and holding me to a higher standard to teach me the work ethic i still carry today. Your influence in my life taught me more than I can put into words. You helped mold me into the man that I have become today. I will forever be grateful to you and your family. May you Rest In Peace, I love you. Til Valhalla! Semper Fi

Linda, you and John were such a positive example for all of us who know you. It is obvious the love you shared for God and for one another, your family and friends. Your dedication to Christ the King Church in serving in so many ways is an honor to you both. We also enjoyed seeing and talking to you at many grandchildrens' school and sporting events over the years. Sean and Kim and your grandchildren are a testimony of your dedication to family. John will not be forgotten as he touched the lives of so many of us in such positive ways. We will honor him with a donation to Christ the King Outreach, of which he was a faithful contributor. Peace in Christ, David & Mary Ellen Taylor

Remembering a good man, amazing husband and father, a positive influence. A genuine smile for everyone. It was a true honor to know you Uncle Johnny. Rest in Peace sir.
Rosemarie Schwendemann left a message on July 27, 2020:
John you have left your mark on everyone you have ever met. My dad always considered you one of his best friends and enjoyed every minute of time you and Linda spent with him and Shirley. When times got tough and my family was down over the illness and eventual loss of my Dad you were there for me and our family to help us get everything arranged as well as offering advice and assistance in handling everything. Your love for life will live on in those that are still here and they will be able to share many a memory of you as you were someone who taught others that family is everything! Rest in peace John and I hope you and Dad reconnect and keep an eye on all those who love you.

John Guerrero wasnt just any man. He wasnt just a father, husband, mentor, or friend. John was everything to everyone when they needed him to be something. He was the hardest working man I knew. He was a coach, a loyal and faithful Christian, a huge football fan, and more. I was lucky to know all the Guerrero's for the last 35 years. Kim and I have been friends over half our life. But her dad, her parents; well, they are LOVE. John would give you the shirt off his back. He and Linda opened their home to me. Me. A newly divorced single mom. Scared to death about the future. No questions asked. Just come, stay with us. Get on your feet. I learned so much about doing things the right way. Never taking short cuts. Showing up. Putting in the work. Being an honest and reliable individual. John was a hero to me. A man that set the bar so high, you had to jump to touch it. His memory and legacy will live on because he was involved in everything. Because he was a giver. Because he was a father, husband, pawpaw, brother, and hero.......

Linda & Family, my condolences, prayer, and love to you, knowing this is an horrific moment in the beautiful 53 years you shared with your precious husband, our friend, John. I have no words to help you, other than for you to know he was loved by countless friends and family, some of whom never met him other than through you. May God bless you with His love and may you always remember the love that John shared with you and the children. I love you, Linda. If I can help I will, my prayers are with you. ❤️

Thank you John for putting up with Linda & I for all of our good times and all the miles we traveled together. Of course, we had you captured cause you couldn’t jump out of a moving car.
