This is my second attempt so if this posts twice it a double tribute to John. The pictures I posted below of him show him with his straight face hiding his dry joking voice. He was my classmate for twelve years and we played together on the 7th & 8th grade football teams. He was one of the most intelligent people in our class and it seemed to come so easily to him. I miss you John.
