    It was an honor to know him and he will be missed by our family. When I think sailing I think of John and his enjoyment of the sport. He was very generous to promote the sport through his sponsorships of young people to allow them the chance to experience sailing. I know he loved his family very much. He has a wonderful family that will be proud to carry on his legacy.

    John has left a legacy for his community that will live forever through his leadership, service, and support of growth and change. He lived life to its fullest and shared this unselfishly with so many.
