I played softball with John at an ASA Indiana State Tournament near Indianapolis. John stepped up to the plate and the opposing first baseman yelled “move in – he’s batting chicken handed.”
John took a swing and smashed the ball over the 300 foot fence!
He was a great competitor and a great athlete. Our deepest sympathy to Mary Ann and family.

My condolences to the family. I only played softball against him a couple times but, he could really hit the ball. I think my fondest memory is being at his house with Ron and Jim and several others playing football in the yard. John came home from work and we all started in on him to play so he agreed. He got the ball on the first play and ran over us like we weren't even there. I was probably 16 at the time so it must have been 1972 or so. I (we) found out we weren't as tough as we thought. He was a great guy.
