John TenEyck, of Virginia Beach, entered Eternal Life on Thursday, August 30, 2018 at the age of 67 years.

Left to cherish his memory are his daughter Holly TenEyck Dalton; seven-year-old granddaughter Madison Brielle Dalton; eighteen-month-old granddaughter Ava Grace Florence Dalton; many loving friends that he grew up with in Glenwood Park, especially John Flannigan, Gary Woodward and Jim Burres; many cousins; other relatives in Kansas and New York, and a host of other friends.

Holly (sister from another mister), I will forever cherish the childhood memories we shared at your daddies and pop pops house I’m glad he didn’t come searching for us when we ran away to the corner of his street… I could go on forever on the special times we had. They are now together to enjoy an eternal life together. They will continue to watch over you and the girls. I love you forever and always❤️

What I came to love was the boys from the hood reminiscing about their teen years in Glenwood Park & all the fun & trouble they got into as kids. Heard the same stories over & over again, every Christmas at the annual dinner of the foursome, JT, JohnF, JimB, GaryW. Actually, the women tired of the same old shenanigans stories every year but the laughs were so tremendous, it became tradition. That’s how I will remember JT. Nothing but LOVE for Holly & family. May God’s blessings sustain them & be abundant. RIP JT.
