Condolences to his beautiful children who will miss him greatly! We will pray for them to find peace and smiles in sharing the memories they have! Deepest sympathies to Effy as I know she will bear the shoulder for his two youngest to cry upon. Please lift this family at this unexpectedly sad time of their lives and remind them that John is in Heaven and in His presence now! He is okay and welcomed with eternal love! Love, Katie Reynolds and family

I worked with Chef John at RFC for many years, and I'll always be grateful for the compassion he showed when I found out my father was ill in Mexico. He knew the importance of family. My sincere condolences to his family from me and mine. RIP Chef
