I had the pleasure of serving John, as a nurse, through the clinic in Beech Grove. He always had a smile and loved to tease. No matter how bad he felt, he was always kind and pleasant. I am sorry to see that he has passed away and I pray now for the family , for comfort, especially this time of year. God bless! Sabra Ann

To the Kindred family,

John and Lee were so involved in University Heights United Methodist Church years ago when I met them for the first time. I will not forget their enthusiasm and devotion to projects supported by our church. May God continue to comfort the Kindred family at this difficult time on the passing of John.

What a wonderful man! We loved having John and Lee as a part of lives here at Perry Seniors. His laugh could light up a room. He’d sing the St. Peter smoking song to everyone who went out for a cigarette, and say something ornery to anyone who walked by. He helped so many people volunteering to deliver meals for us, and his legacy lives on. We cried with him when he sold the farm, and we laughed with him on his birthdays, and we honored him on Veteran’s Day. I hope he knew he was loved. Thank you for sharing your father/grandfather with us.
