Aunt Delores and cousins. I was sorry to hear of John's passing. May the memories you shared sustain you during this difficult time.

My Grandfather Claude Brow and John were co-workers at New Products. But more importantly, my Grandfather told me he felt fortunate because, "When you work along side a good friend like John, it makes work a lot easier." And back then, if you were as close as they were, you were a true friend of the families'. Our deepest sympathies.

May God bless and keep the Nimtz family during this difficult time. My thoughts and prayers go out to Tom, Brian, Kelly, Carter and Kelsey, along with all the Nimtz families. I will always remember Uncle John for first his faith, his smile and his laugh. May he rest peacefully forever at our Savior's side.

So sorry to hear of John's passing, the Frank Schroeder family (Frank, Ardyth, Audrey, Aubrey, Arrin) always enjoyed coming to southwest Michigan during the peak of the fruit season to see John and all of the other Nimtz cousins and enjoy the area goodies!
God Bless to all of the family members. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

I remember "Uncle John" his kind smile and helpfulness to all at the "NIMTZ" reunions. I am very proud to be apart of that historial family.

Uncle John was a blessing to me when growing up in St.Joseph MI. He was loving, fun, optomistic, and truly cared about his nieces and nephews. He was kind-hearted, and compassionate. He will be missed by those who survive him.
I express my sympathy to the family, and to all of his friends that feel this loss.
