I feel like I have known John all my life. We shared homerooms since 7th grade. I am so saddened to learn of his passing! Love and sympathy to all of you.

John and Fran were in Miami when Lee and I moved there in mid 1969. We had many memorable times including Summer memberships at Doral fighting the Blue Monster. Another old buddy gone away.
