My condolences to the entire Brodahl family. John and I were friends, roommates and fraternity brothers at Kearney State College in 1968/69. Myself and others recognized John as a man with great character. I admired him greatly because he was so totally focused on his goal of becoming a DVM. I recall many Friday evenings when John went to the library to study, while most of us spent our evenings in less fruitful ways. We hunted together as well and he was never concerned if we returned empty handed.....he simply enjoyed being outdoors and with nature.
