I have so many fun and wonderful memories of John. My 21st birthday still makes me laugh to this day nearly 26 years later. I will miss hanging out at concerts or just meeting up for dinner and beers. He always could make you feel good even on the worst of days with his humor, smile and for me a big bear hug. Rest easy my friend. We will meet again one day, for this I am sure of. My deepest condolences for the entire family. May God comfort you all during this difficult time.

John was not only a coworker of mine but he was also a very dear friend. John and I go way back. I met John in July of 1988 and have been best friends ever since. He always was up beat and had a smile on his face. When you would see John it usually lifted up your spirits also. He will be missed around the office very much. Sometimes you don`t realize how much of a work load he took off of you until he`s not there. I will miss you buddy, Until we meet again.
