So very sad to hear of John’s passing!

John was an important part of my young life and was one of my closest friends. My fondness memories of John was how great a baseball player he was, and how
he out played all of us. My life, during those years, were an important part of my childhood, and it was partly because of the friendship and time spent with John.
