John and I always had good talks. We learned from each other. We laughed at each other’s jokes and stories. JOHN became a father figure to me over the years that we knew each other. I will miss his friendship, laugh, stories, jokes, and his love for family and his cars. Till we meet again John
When he lived in Butler he did marry and had his first daughter, Linda. He was very personable the 4 times I saw him in my life and will always regret never having a relationship with him. Besides me, he is also survived by 5 more wonderful grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren he never got to know.
We briefly met John at Alesa's wedding. We could see he was very proud and loved his family deeply. We are truly sorry to hear of your loss. Please accept our condolences and may the Lord bless your family in this time of grief.

A fine man. A fine hearty laugh. Always deal with his diminishing sight ... a brave man. A good father and husband. My cousin Wanda loved him and they were married a long time. I hope that someone can learn what his unit was during the Korean War Era. He was in the band? A band? I don't know what branch of service, but he was a veteran. For those who might want to know: the Eagan's & Mehaffie's & Fissels were all involved in many of our country's wars. I do not know much about the Fissels. John Fissel was in the Air Force. Pam's father was in military -- Air Force maybe? Ralph Fissel, married to Merle Mehaffie ... was in WW I and was gassed. WW II saw many in all the families involved. In Vietnam, Mark, David Mehaffie; Pat Eagan; Jerry Eagan. Veterans are important figures in our society. John Aaron was a vet and I am glad I knew him. I've been away off and on. I'm sorry I'm not closer to visit. What a great laugh he had.
John Aaron , who I always knew as Uncle Jack, was a wonderful man. He was raised in Butler , Pa where I still live. He was an accomplished drummer and loved to tell stories about the times he played with various bands. Although I didn't see him often, I loved times when we were able to visit. He was always ready to laugh. He loved life and truly loved his family , especially his wife of many years, Wanda, and his beautiful Alesa. My sincere condolences to his entire family. He traveled life well and has made the final journey. Love and blessings to you all. Xoxo. Judy Whitacre ( niece)
