This is sad news indeed. Many of us regretted that John was unable to make it to the Weston High '69 50th reunion in October 2019. I missed this chance to see my fellow soccer player and orchestra member. John, I'll remember you for your clarinet playing.

John was a unique individual (we still make the salsa that he was so generous to share the recipe). A talented and unforgettable man whose loss leaves a huge void. He will be remembered for many things but especially for being a caring, kind and loving person. Sending prayers for peace and healing to his family as they cope with the grief of his loss.
