I only met John a handful of times but I knew his Mother, Jane, very well. She was a close friend of my Mom’s, Joyce Patridge. My thoughts and prayers are with John and his family.

I haven't seen John since we were kids. We were next door neighbors on Parce Avenue, Fairport. I remember a bunch of us "kids" in the neighborhood playing all the time. Sending my thoughts and prayers to John's family and may John rest in peace.
