Memories of John in the mid 1960s and 70s were of a handsome mid western fellow who was witty, with a dry sense of humor and whip smart. And in those days, he loved to drive his sports car fast, was loyal, just and faithful to his friends, loved ones, and was devoted to his children and their well being. R.I.P. John.
