“To know Junie was to love him. Talk about a man with a very large heart, great character & just an over all awesome man. He was a very large part my of years as I was just a kid up until my adult years. He was always a phone call away when I wanted to talk to someone or get a laugh. The multiple things we always did I’ll forever be grateful I got to be around someone like him. I want to say to the family Sorry for the loss of such a wonderful person. ❤️ Jenna”

“Uncle Junie was one of my favorite Uncles. I had the pleasure of working with him at the Scotch Rd cleaners, he always had a smile on his face and all the customers that came in, he would always stop what he was doing to come out and greet them by name and thank them for being such loyal customers to his store. He also gave me away at my wedding because my dad had passed away before I got married. So many good memories of him. May he rest in peace. Remembering Uncle Junie always, Love Carol and Bill DeYoung”

“Rest in peace Uncle Junie. I’s been way too long since we have seen each other, but you have always had a special place in my heart. I remember you coming over to Grams and making me laugh when I was little girl. You bought me a bear I named Junie bear, that I still have to this day. You are an amazing man and will be forever missed. Love you always. XOXO Holly DeYoung Schrader”

“To our dearest cousins, We are sorry for your loss. Uncle Junie ment a lot to us. I (Janis)can remember going to visit him in Upper Black Eddy with my Mom. When I started dating Toad we would go to visit all of you on Scotch Rd. Toad remembers them coming to visit his Mom in West Trenton. In later years he’d come to watch the kids at the grange horse show and stop by and visit with Dad and Tacy. He had lots of fun memories of him at Yates reunion too! So many wonderful memories. Love to all of you, Janis and Toad”
