    I had the pleasure of meeting John in person within the last 90 days as well as conversing online. Our world is a sadder place without John in it. My condolences to the family and all who knew him.

    It was a pleasure meeting you and talking the few time we ran into each other. I felt like I knew you the first time I met you. It would have been an honor to know you better and shot a few rounds or caught a few fish with you .
    My condolences to your family, God Speed their recovery. I know they cherished the time they had, but I am sure still wanted much more.
    Thank you for your service to the country and the local community, not to mention GCGF, where you will be deeply missed. Thanks again for you being you.

    May God take comfort in the thought, the last breath drawn here , ushered John unto the Lord with the next breath. To be absent here, is to be present with the Lord.

    You will be re-united.

    I am quite saddened by your departure John but I am much the richer for knowing you all these years. I’ll never forget our offshore trips on my boat. Just two good buddies enjoying the cobalt blue waters and our friendship. Smooth seas my friends and we’ll meet on the other side.
