Dear Family, I am so sorry for the loss of John. He was really a very special friend to me in High School. We were in the band together and I remember his sense of humor and just being a good all around guy. It was so good to get to visit with him at our Robbinsville High School Class Reunion in 2019. I will really miss him. Anna Ginn

Dear family....I am so sorry for your loss. John was a 1968 classmate of mine and we both played trumpet in the band. We will certainly miss him.
