For some reason John and his brother Joe came into my thoughts recently after not seeing him since graduation in 1981. I googled their name a found this sad notification of Johns passing. I moved into the Carroll high school district in 1977 and Johns brother helped me when I got into scrapes with the Martin junior high thugs. Thank you Joe.
I then met John in 10th grade at Carroll and had fun hanging out with him around school.
Always a fun guy that almost killed me numerous times while riding on the back of that really small motorcycle of his going to school.
Rest In Peace in John.
