I had the pleasure, luck and honor to work along side this great Man albeit only for a short time. Although i have not seen him since his retirement, there's not a work day that goes by that i don't carry with me the lessons he taught . Gentle, kind, caring and funny.... John always made us laugh. You may not be here, but you are not gone. Peace be with you Big John.

The three Wright Brothers loved aviation. The flights on the B-17 and the Ford Trimotor are among the high points we had together. You will be greatly missed, brother.
