My sympathies to the Kilgore family during this difficult time. Mr. Kilgore was the kindest neighbor and certainly a dedicated Father of three energetic boys that will forever remain part of my childhood memories.

Our sincerest condolences on the earthly loss of your Dad. After so many wonderful family and childhood memories and traditions in Ohio, we were doubly blessed to share winters in Sarasota with Uncle John to create adulthood memories and traditions. He always looked forward to joining us at our club for the Annual Seafood Extravaganza! We spent each Super Bowl together at our home, making sure we cooked his favorite foods. We especially appreciated Uncle John reflecting on his own life experiences and the lessons he learned. He was never one to be reticent when it came to sharing his viewpoint on current events--and we valued his opinions. Our time together was always special and will be cherished forever.
