So sorry for the loss of this "one of a kind" man. He was so generous with everyone. Never another one like him. He is now surrounded by the Eternal Light and all God's blessings. Our deepest condolences to his lovely family.

Our deepest prayers and thoughts go out to the entire Fuchs family. John was an incredible human being that I loved so dearly. John would give the shirt off his back for you if you asked. I will never forget all the special times we had together. John was always like another “dad” to me and for that I am eternally grateful. God bless the Fuchs family and I know John is now doing much better than all of us in heaven. We love you John and you will always have a huge space in our hearts. 😀

Bernie, Brenda, Mary, Annette, Sarah, Megan, Molly, Katie, Margaret Ann and all who loved John. You are all in my heart, my thoughts, my prayers. I hope this poem brings you comfort as it does me: All Is Well _Death is Nothing at All By Henry Scott-Holland Death is nothing at all. It does not count. I have only slipped away into the next room. Nothing has happened. Everything remains exactly as it was. I am I, and you are you, and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged. Whatever we were to each other,that we are still. Call me by the old familiar name. Speak of me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference into your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is absolute and unbroken continuity. What is this death but a negligible accident? Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just round the corner. All is well. Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost. One brief moment and all will be as it was before. How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!
