Although we live just across the street from John's place, we just found out today the sad news that he had passed away, and regret that we were unable to attend his Mass and extend out condolences to his survivors. John was a great neighbor, and we always enjoyed exchanging some words the many times we had the chance to spend a little time with him. We will remember him for many years to come when we look out and see his home.

"john boy" was a great golfer...many times I stood in awe at his shot-making! He also had a vivid sense of humor which had to be openly appreciated! John will now enjoy his golf and joking in heaven with his maker, Our Lord Jesus Christ
