I met John while working at HP back in the early 80s when we both worked on the 8640 line. John was a really great coworker. Among other things, I learned to play cribbage from John and he was a master! We would spend our lunchtime sitting around a break table eating, talking and playing cards. John would share stories about his airforce experience and growing up. Those were fun times and I fondly remember John and I am thankful for the time we spent together.
