My sympathies to the family. My husband and I met John sailing Sunfish. We live in North Carolina and we would meet him in various spots of our trips to championships. He was a great sailor and friend. He'll be remember in our next race.

Dear Joan and family we would like to express our sincere sympathy for the passing of John. He was such a nice man and great neighbor. Donnie and John had a lot in common with their love for cars and trucks and keeping them clean and spotless, they loved chatting and talking about motors. May God confort you and your family during this difficult time, we will continue to keep you in our thoughts and prayers. John will truly be missed.
