of John's Passing

Memories & Candles
John & Izzy were always wonderful neighbors. John always had a positive attitude and great work ethic. We enjoyed meeting John on the property line and discussing a variety of subjects. We enjoyed John's 'Can Do' approach to problem solving and his willingness to put his own personal effort into providing a solution. John will be missed, but not forgotten.

I can well appreciate what a great loss the death of John must be for the entire Rouman family. When my cousin John and I were growing up in Tomahawk, everyone called him ‘Big John’ and me ‘Little John,’ because we had the same name and he was three years older. But as John J. was reaching his prime, we all knew him for his ‘bigness’ in character and soul.

I have to say that John was one of the best men that I ever associated with in the Design and Construction industry. He was an honest and decent and kind man to all that knew him and he was a model of what a business owner should be like. I regret miissing the opportunity to purchase Rouman and Associates from John and work with him and learn from him. I consider it to be one of my biggest errors

Mrs. Rouman, Jane, Sarah and the rest of family,
My heart just aches as I just heard of John's passing. What a special man he was. May his memories live on.
John was a very special, kind, reserved and intelligent man. One of my memories of him was having a chance to chat with him when he worked on the weekends as I would often run into him at his office when I was cleaning at the NewHouse of Beauty

Dear Grandpa, stories are like old friends, they are good to come and visit sometimes. I will miss all the wonderful tales I have heard I will miss the pizza eating woman with all the bracelets, the funny wine seller who sometimes gave you free wine, the flashy dancer, the jewish frat boys, and much more. I will miss the big words and the complicated math I will never understand but most of all I will miss how you inspired

Our deepest sympathies for you and your family. John was our favorite to visit with as he always had a smile and great words of wisdom. He genuinely enjoyed life as well as anyone who took the time to visit. It did not matter what the day was or the weather. Everyone cherished spending time with him and felt refreshed after talking.
We will forever hold him in our memories for they broke the mold when he was born.

I'm very sorry to learn of John's death. He has always been one of the most beautiful people I have known. I am in Florida and won't be attending the services but I will be thinking of both of you and offering my prayers for you and John.

John was always a "gentle" man. I appreciated his dedicated service as a board member at the Thompson Center when I worked there! His smile and support were special..

My thoughts and prayers are with Ezzy and the rest of the family. My daughter took their dog for walks when Ezzy was laid up with her leg, and watered their plants when they were going to be a way for a period of time. Ezzy and John were always so appreciative and made Emily feel appreciated. God bless you all and may He hold you in His hands as you travel this journey.
