Thinking about the good times we had Jon when we were kids in Cooperstown.  You always were able to use your dad's big car and that was always fun riding around in.  RIP my friend.

Jon Hildre and I met when he and I worked together in Fargo, and he was an amazing fellow.  Even though his health was fragile, he was a dedicated, hardworking employee, and in addition he volunteered a lot.  He was a volunteer during the pledge drive for Prairie Public, for Special Olympics, for the Fargo Marathon, as a guide for the new Public Library, etc. He was a good friend.  He will be missed.

I knew Mr. Hildre because my mother worked with him and they had the same birthday.  Mr. Hildre was always kind to me.  He gave me a wonderful wedding present when I got married in 2008.  He was very kind and generous.  He was a friend to our whole family.  He will be missed!
