  2. I have very warm memories of John when we were just kids on Hoover Dr.
    For absolutely no reason I chose to tell my wife about our time doing taxidermy in John’s attic only two days ago and never mentioned him previously in 40+ years of our marriage. Anyway RIP John.

  3. I remember John as being one of the kindest people in our class at Cardinal Mooney. The world would be a better place if there were more people in it like John. Farewell my friend, see you in the next life.
