Johnny always had an infectious laugh whenever I was around him. No matter the situation, he could find the lighter side and his laugh would put everyone at ease. As his truck slogan stated, "Never Panic". That was Johnny. And he loved his family dearly. He was proud of his children and was in love with his bride. He was a good friend to us, always ready to assist with baling hay or other chores around the farm, and was a hunting partner to my dad. Johnny always made you feel good and welcomed at his home. So many wonderful memories of being with Johnny and the Siebers family. Our prayers are with you all!

My deepest sympathies to Jan and Mrs. Siebers (Dee), and the whole family. I'm also especially thinking of Russell, Carol, Mark, Frank, LouAnne, David, and Gary. When we were kids, our families had so much fun together!!! I remember your Dad as a person who was very generous, and loved to laugh!!! I'm sorry I cannot get off work and travel to come for your Dad's funeral, but your whole family is in Ken and my thoughts and prayers. Love! Pam and Ken.
