John Balkus Obituary, Death – Today, South Omaha paid its final farewells to a treasured resident who has been a part of the neighborhood for many years. Since we were both children, Johnny and I have known each other, and I consider him to be my closest friend. After I had introduced him to Brandon, he felt the same way about him as I did about Brandon. In other words, he felt exactly the same way I did about Brandon.
In other words, he shared the same feelings toward him as I did. I have known from the very beginning that he will be there for me in the same way that a brother would be. I was a child when his father passed away in a car accident; I was a teenager when his mother was killed on New Year’s Eve by a drunk driver. Both of their deaths were tragic for our family. The deaths of both of them occurred within the course of my lifetime.
I was present beside both of his parents and other family members when he passed away. Because he was so reliant on her, losing her rendered him incapable of continuing on with his life, and he ended up committing himself as a result. Even though I was aware of some of his questionable acts, I never gave up hope for him because I knew the suffering he was attempting to cover up was very real and that he was working very hard to overcome it.
Despite the fact that I was aware of some of his questionable actions, I never gave up hope for him. I never stopped believing in him, despite the fact that I was aware of some of the horrible choices he had made in the past. I was prepared for this day, and now that it has come, I am happy that he will finally be able to go to sleep without being concerned about anything.
