To the Gulley family I extend my most sincere condolences. I have worked with John since last fall and found him to be so kind and accepting of what life can throw at one. He is such an inspiration and I am better for having known him. I was his nurse case manager with Somatus. Sincerely, Colleen Rubin RN

Condolences to John’s family. John was a really good guy that always carried himself in a strong positive manner. I have fond memories of riding the old yellow bus to and from Innes Jr High where there where only a few of us at that time so we where a close knit group. We stuck together and looked out for each other. John was a grade older than me. I could ALWAYS count on Big John for an encouraging word or back up if needed! John was one of the most level headed teens when tension would arise but Big John also did not take any mess! He was just a good dude! I had not seen him since we moved away in 1978 , we spoke a few years ago. I wish I would have followed up and seen him when I was in Akron we just could not make it happen. Until we meet again take care and rest in peace and power.. Mike Millender Frisco, Texas

Johnny, my "baby" cousin. You were so much joy when you were born to Uncle John and Aunt Laine. We partied, cried and laughed together. You were loved then and always will be. RIH.
