Mr Voss was a kind person and great art teacher. I dont know how he put up with junior high students as long as he did. He was always patient. Rest In Peace!

I taught across the hall from John. He was an amazing teacher who was able to draw creativity out of students in an inspiring way. John was always kind and a good friend to me, and I will miss seeing him at the retired functions. You have my deepest condolences at his passing. Rest In Peace.

My heart goes out to Johns family & friends. He was an inspiration to many at Conrady, including my daughter Beth. I often see Johns artwork at the Public Landing in Lockport. He will be missed, but not forgotten.

John was an excellent teacher and he influenced the lives of many Conrady students. I will always remember his artistic talent.

Sorry for your loss, Mr. Voss would help students having problems be letting them do projects during lunch, and after school if you wanted to, he helped make me a better artist and I hope heaven has more colors then he can name.God Bless.

My heartfelt condolences go out to all of Johns surviving relatives. Over the years since our retirement from Conrady , I have often found myself thinking about how John managed to allow so many students realize their artistic potential. He will be sorely missed.

I always enjoyed Mr. Voss art class at Conrady Jr. High. He had such a special knack dealing with the rather difficult and sassy pre-teens. God bless him!
