Colleen and family you have our deepest sympathy on John's passing. At our 50th class reunion we shared memories and lots of laughter. I will always remember John's unmistakable laugh and the memories of growing up with and knowing John. John was 4 days younger than me and I always told him to respect his elders ( me). A lot of good times. He will be missed.
