Dear Jennifer and Dominic,

We saw you last August 2018,Jennifer, and purchased
John' painting of the harbor, the paint factory and two ships in front. This is another glorious painting of John's showing his dedication to Gloucester. We have it our home in Albany, NY. We also have five paintings of John's in our home in Florida. (I use to say to John that our Florida home was the John Nesta Gallery,South.)

When we came to Rocky Neck in 2018, we did not know of John's passing almost a year before. We were distressed!

Each year for a decade we stayed at the Accommodations in Rocky Neck. Our first visit was with John to catch up on what he was doing in painting and just talking. It was wonderful talking to John. One year, we both found out about our love of New Mexico. He showed us some of his paintings of Taos. We bought two of them which we have in Florida.

As someone else said, John was the spirit of Rocky Neck. It will never be the same for us without John.

Jennifer and family..
I just learned of John's passing. I will always remember his bright smile when we visited your gallery and the times we shared at One Pride;s Lane celebrating the season. I treasure his works as did my husband. He will not be forgotten...nor will you. Stay well and beautiful..
Most sincerely, Patricia Lambert

What!? He can't be dead. He was so alive, so full of creativity and friendliness. Just saw him last summer during my usual stay at Rocky Neck. He was the spirit of Rocky Neck. Loved his son and wife and community. A terrible loss. I hope someone quickly organizes an exhibition of his wonderful paintings.

My family and I have been collecting Johns work for over 20 years. When my kids were little they fell in love with Johns sweeping scenes of Glouster Harbor and the quiet stillness of the harbor under ice. We ended up owning many of his larger works and a few small ones as well. John was a truly wonderful artist and person. We will miss him greatly.
