I remember John ( rockstar) as one of the strongest men I have ever met. Thats why I called him rockstar. He was truly was a man of strength and perseverance, I was very proud of how strong he was, I admired him greatly.

I think of the day I met him during Carla’s graduation, looking proud, kind, and happy wearing his hat, all smiles. Since that day, when I think of him, or Carla speaks of him, I always picture him wearing his hat… happy and smiling. He lived his life on his terms, defying medical odds kicking butt and taking names like the rockstar that he was. Not only did we share a blood type but we share a love for his family. I know his love, strength, perseverance and determination will live on through his family and I will forever remember him fondly as one of the strongest men I have ever known.

May care and love of those around you provide comfort and peace to get you through the days ahead. My most sincere condolences to Johns family.

Some of my best memories start with Mom in the background saying, "John! Stop!" When we were kids, he would take John and me on adventurous hikes through the woods, climbing on rocks and in trees - places Mom would never approve at our young age. It was so much fun! I remember when I was little he would ride slowly down the country lane at Aunt Mary's, with me on the back of his motorcycle. Dad was so strong, he could lift both me and John with one arm and swing us around. At the pool, we would beg for him to throw us in the air so we could make big splashes. There was a lot of laughter when Dad was home after working so hard to provide for us! I love and miss you, Daddy!
