John was a great fellow student at Everett. I always enjoyed when we we spent time with each other. He helped make the Class of '68 one of the best ever (and largest) in the history of Everett. Yes, the band was pretty good, but it was my memory of Jon as just a good human being that I will remember. Rest in peace.

Karen and I just read about Jon’s death. We are very sorry and pass along our thoughts and prayers . So many great memories of playing in the Everett band and our rock band with Merle, Fred, Al Merritt, and myself. We were good friends but lost touch after high school . I was surprised to hear Jon had joined the Navy, I did the same in 1969. We will miss you old friend!
