Rev Loewen married us almost 46 years ago. We went through Confirmation class and he was our pastor. John always talked with us each time he would see us out and about. He was a great inspiration to us. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family in this time of loss. May God give comfort and may everyone who knew John reflect on all the good memories. Love, Jim & Pam Sheaffer

Sending our love and prayers. Many good memories of John and Lois. It was through John's invitation that we got started in over 20 years of ministry at Camp Penn. Rev. Raymond and Ethel Brooks

To the Family of John: I spent many afternoons with John at Green Ridge watching him color pictures. And he and I loved to sit and put puzzles together. When he would place a piece of the puzzle in - he would always look at me and smile. I would tell him - "good job, John". Then we would laugh together. He was such a soft spoken, kind man. I so much enjoyed the time we spent together. Vickie Negley
