    My condolences to Johns’ Loved Ones.. He and my father were siblings from a very unique family – The Northrups. I spent many happy days with John, his sisters Marcia and Mary on Adams St. Ionia, MI Life was so simple then, and we all wound up with different paths and some in different States and lost track of each other. Life is short. Bless you John RIP

    Jon & I were boyhood friends, (from an early age & remained so through grade school, graduating high school &.beyond,) through our parents. Jon’s mother Beaty(sp) worked as short order cook for our family run (brothers Stanley, Johnny Krycinski & brother-in-law Frank Wapiennik) business, the Ionia Inn, back in the day referred to as a“beer garden” ! Often time as youngsters Jon & I would stay at one another’s house overnight, as youngsters did back in the day, sometimes Jon’s sisters Mary or Marcia w/b babysitting me rather than me going home, I would just stay the night & go home in the morning. What I remember best that I liked so much about staying at Jonny boy’s on Adam’s St was listening to the trains at night going whistling down those train tracks out back of their house going clickety clack, clickety clack putting us to sleep at night … Listen for the Train JonnyBoy listen for the Train, it will put us to sleep & then you can Rest In Peace brother … you can Rest In Peace !
