I attended medical school with John back when dinossaurs roamed the earth and I will always remember him for his calm and gentle spirit-even during Neurology rounds with Dr. Fred Plum- always centered and supportive of his classmates- rest in peace- I was honored to know you.

I was saddened to learn of Dr Stakes' passing. He cared for my mother with Parkinsons' for 10 years. He was so empathic, and treated her with such dignity and caring. It was always a treat for her to see him, as he was so kind and empowering. Yet, he was always very honest clinically with her and her family. My husband, who is a surgeon at Mass Eye and Ear, and I referred several patients to Dr. Stakes, as we thought he was the best there was. Our condolences go out to his family, as he was surely as wonderful a husband and father as he was a physician.

Sincerely, Susan Reardon

Elegant, witty, wry- HARDLY traits of the average HighSchooler- but that was John, & he was loved & respected for it. At the PHS 50th we were so saddened to hear of his illness, & now, of his loss. "A Gentleman & a Scholar'- the best they come. My condolences to all who held him dear.
