I was so shocked to hear of your sudden loss. There are no words to express what you are going through or to comfort you. But you have to remember the special times you had with him and when you need comfort the most those memories will help you. You will always have family, friends and faith that will help you get through it. Love and prayers you cousin, Renee

BJ, Emily & Allison:Our sincere and heartfelt sympathy on the loss of such a special man in all your lives. From the first time we met your parents, there was an instant connection - friends for life. Your Dad had that funny, dry sense of humor, and we just waited to hear what he had to say next that would have us all laughing. "Hey, Skippy, can you get me a refill." That poor waiter didn't stand a chance that night between your Dad and Bob. All kidding aside, we know how difficult the days ahead will be on all of you, but know that you have a lot of love and support of family and friends to help you through these days ahead. We are here for all of you if you ever need to talk, need a shoulder to lean on or even cry on.Although your husband/Dad is no longer here in the physical sense, you have such a beautiful Angel who will always be looking over you, and protecting you. John was a really great man, and was called home way too soon. May all the special & wonderful memories you have of him get you through this difficult time.Love to you all......Bob & Denise

We were deeply saddened when learned of the untimely passing of J.D. Please accept our heartfelt condolences. Although no words can bring true comfort at this time, J.D. provided your family the following cherished memories that provide permanent comfort. He was a loving and extremely helpful as a son. He was a loving lifelong friend and partner as a husband. He was loving, dotting and supportive as a father. He was a loving, protective and concerned big brother. Besides loving his family the most, he also loved being friendly to all, laughing at a good joke and occasionally sharing gossip. May you be comforted by these memories and all the other love surrounding your family. Sent with love, remembrance, thoughts and prayers. Uncle Dave and Aunt Kathy McDonald

Dear "J.D."'s Family, Was so saddened to hear of John's untimely passing. He was such a wonderful guy and always had a good word and a smile for you. He was a very good official and loved his rounds of golf. One of the most enjoyable rounds of golf I ever had was spent with John and fellow football officials, Chuck Costanza and Ron Churchin. John will be missed. God Bless to the Dockter family. Peace be with you and also with John. Sincerely, Randy Cos

Betty Jo, My prayers are with you and your family at this time while we honor a great man. J.D. always had a smile on his face and made us all laugh. I recall the football games that he would play for Monaca and how everyone enjoyed being around him. He lit up the world being here and he will light up Heaven.

Mill left a message on February 21, 2014:
I have several great memories of a great friend. The one that JD and I always laughed about was being in Mrs Bennett's English class and JD locked me in the closet because we sat in the back of room and while I missed class he threw my books out of the second story window. From that day forward we were great friends. I will miss you J!!!!! Love Mill

To begin, John was more than just my best friend's husband to me. I have known John since B.J. started dating him back in the day. I have always thought of him as someone I could easily talk to, joke around with and generally have a lot of fun with. I had the privilege of being a bridesmaid on the special day that he and B.J. were married. That was the start of a life long friendship. Since then we have been through the births of our children, divorce, and many other life events. I always knew that they were there for me when I needed them and I for them. I will miss John, but I know that now he is in a place that we can only dream about. John was an awesome Husband and Father and his memory will be with me until I finally get to party with him again in a better place. RIP, J.D.
