I have so many stories I can share about John, I don't know where to begin. He and I worked together for almost 10 years producing local cable commercials and he was the first person I would speak to every day. The story that always comes to mind is when John came back from a commercial shoot all shook up and pale. He had stopped at a gas station to buy his Diet Mountain Dew and when he stepped away from the cooler with it in hand, a homeless man was right there next to him & walked right up to John face-to-face and just stared at him then walked away after 10 seconds or more. John put the drink back into the cooler and walked out the door and drove back to our office. When he came in I asked what was wrong with him and he started this story with "I think someone just stole my soul..." He then proceeded to tell it in the eloquent way only John could. I have many others and will post them as well. Happy birthday John, I really miss you buddy!
