I had the privilege of working with John in uniform for several years in the Fifth Precinct. He had excellent street smarts, was never afraid of getting into the fray, and always had your back. He had the ability to size up a situation and the knack to defuse it to avoid problems. John also demonstrated the ability to understand that not everyone was a troublemaker, some were just troubled. He gave everyone he encountered a fair shake, a quality that can easily get lost after so many years on the job.

If ever there was a person who deserves “happy ever after” it was John. Rest In Peace my friend, I’ll see you on the other side.

I will always remember when I came home the night that I came home from the academy after gun and shield day. The amount of pride that I saw in your eyes that you had seeing me follow in your footsteps and become a police officer was remarkable and I will never forget that moment I love you always Dad!

I’ll always remember your annual summer trips to see your sister in Virginia. You always loved to go for shrimp on the water and your favorite margaritas at Plaza. Mary always had such a good time giving you a hard time (about everything!) and the two of you enjoyed so many laughs! I always enjoyed our talks about your children and how proud you were of both Robin and Chris. I’m happy you and Mary are together again 💕 and you will be missed!

I’ll never forget all the Christmas’s Eve’s we spent around the table. My favorites were when things got weird and you would take out your guns & bow and arrows. And that one time you decided to show me your handcuffs and you proceeded to handcuffed me. I’ll make sure your grandchildren know all about their grandpa. We will miss you.

I’ll never forget that one Christmas where you got your Rolex. Chris and I were so excited because we told Santa to get it for you and he did. When we read that note from Santa it seemed so real. I hope to continue making you proud! I will always love you and miss you dad!
