One of my students interviewed John for the Veterans Heritage Project. She was affected greatly by her encounter with him. In her essay about John, she quoted him as saying, “Life is very short, live your life according to the way it's supposed to be, live a good life, and you live a long life.” Now isn't that just the way he lived his life? He spoke to our students and really had a heart for them. John was an incredible man.
It was a pleasure to be acquainted With John. He was always upbeat and served his Country and community with honor.
