So sad to hear the news of such a wonderful man passing. He was a great man and uncle. I will always remember him for being a kind accepting man willing to help anyone who needed it. Rest in peace.

I was very sad today when I heard that John had passed away. I've thought of him often and will always remember him with a smile. John had a terrific sense of humor and his kind words of encouragement helped me many times. He was a good friend and ally. I'm glad he is not suffering and is now in a better place.
