2 Condolences to Ezra “Big John” Baughman, Sr.

  1. Sandy (Sam) Jeffries says:

    My heart is heavy for Sherry and all the family. I would like to say what a wonderful Paw paw John was to both my children.He was always fair to each of them. It was important that they both spend time with him. He always made sure that they had what they needed. They both say they will never forget the sound of his laughter,and neither will I. When I needed help he just seemed to know it…..almost saving me in moments by just being a Paw paw and for that I will forever be grateful. May all of us think of Big John and remember the laughter……..
