Add My Condolences

My condolences to the family, so sorry to hear he passed away. I met John at La Crest, we would always have the most interesting talks and the funniest jokes. He told me about his business he started in his Sixties, I loved hearing that because he made me realize you can always follow your dreams no matter what. He will truly be missed, I will miss the jokes he would send me on Facebook. I know in heaven he has God cracking up laughing!
