    My deepest condolences, we were in shock to hear this. My heart goes out to all the family. I have not seen John for a long time but I miss the bondfire nights and the good times. I always seem to run into John at the strangest places like visiting my father at the VA hospital and John walks off the elevator or out to dinner and he comes to the table to say hello. I will miss him popping up at random. ♥️ I am truly sorry for your loss.

    John was always so friendly and warmhearted. It seemed like everytime we went to Red, Hot, & Blue, John was there. He always came over to our table to catch up. And back when we were neighbors, John came over to our house to hang out with Patrick, Alana, and Jeff. He was so sweet, he would help me cook dinner for everyone. And how John loved soy sauce. I think he put it in everything. Of course, he had a crush on Alana too. Please, take comfort in knowing John was a good, caring, loving person and we share in your loss.
