Heart felt condolences to John's family and friends. Sorry I missed his wake. He was a kind, fun loving guy. I will sorely miss him, as I'm sure the entire club will.

Marina, so sorry to hear about the passing of John. He and I go way back to our childhood days on North Main Street. Through the years we still remained friends and he was always a supporter of our family. His suffering days are over now even thought he fought right to the end. I am sure he will be hunting, fishing and reliving the past with my Dad up in heaven. May they have a joyous reunion.
