    I don’t know what to say except John was a great guy and left us way too soon. From the times he helped me with various cars to the smile and hug at family gatherings – I can hear his voice. He’ll be missed dearly by family and friends. Good fishing in the sky John.

    Uncle John was mot my uncle by blood, but definitely by love. He was actually like another grandpa to me when I was growing up. He and Aunt Nedra helped raise me, spent so much time with them! Have so many amazing memories! Always looked forward to seeing Uncle John, he was so much fun! Will never forget his smile and am so sad that he is gone. Love you Uncle John, and miss you!

    John Bachar is a wonderful man. He is a very good man. That’s easy to say but very difficult to be. He was a pleasant and honorable person and someone you could always depend on. He was soft spoken and did not want the limelight. He would stay on the edge when people gathered but would be front and center if there was work to be done. John was gifted mechanically and used his skills to help many people….
    I am grateful to have known him and I will miss John Bachar

    David, Candace, Chase & Lake,
    Our hearts and prayers go out to you and your entire family, in your time of deep sorrow and pain. Unfortunately, I never met Mr. Bachar, but remember the love and laughter of Dave’s fishing/hunting trip stories at Rball. May God Bless him in his reunion with his maker, and Bless the family as you continue your journey. All our love & prayers, Chad.
