I had the pleasure of working with John for a long time (13 yrs). Over those years I heard nothing but positive things about him and believe me, I heard a lot. He always handled himself well and his work ethic was superb. The Air Force Space Command community will have a tough time trying to fill his shoes with just one person, he was the goto person for all things related to the Integrated Tactical Warning Attack Assessment system. Despite his professionalism and superb work ethic he always took the time to simply chat, whether it be about sports, indy racing, a trip he had taken or just ask about your family. He'll be missed by all.

Dear Beth, It was so good to talk with you today. I still can't believe it--it's still so hard to understand. I prayed for such a different outcome yet we trust that God is with us and that John's in the comfort of His arms. We continue to pray for you each day and we praise God for having graced you with such strength and perseverance. I think of your marriage and what a model it was for us. Your love and respect for each other and the obvious joy you felt in each other's company made such a positive impression on us. We'll miss John's laugh and gentle sense of humor. You didn't know it but while we talked on the phone I was running from room to room trying to escape the noisy pleas of my three year old who wanted to play cars with me and who was also crying because of torments from our 7 year old. When that subsided I had to run from my sad-eyed 10 year old who kept following me trying to find out if it was okay to eat a hunk of goat cheese she had found in the refrigerator--all dairy had been banned while they had the flu and she was desperate for cheese! Rather than get mad, when we hung up all I could think was that John would be laughing at this scene and that helped me to laugh, too. His humor and joy touched me even now and I'm better for it. Love and hugs,

John was such a fun person to work with and was well respected for his knowledge and calm head. I wish I could have donated my sick leave to John, but the system is such that I could not. We will all miss John, and he spoke so highly of his family so I know you all miss him immensely too.

Our thoughts are with you Beth. John touched all of us and we will always remember him. He is truly missed.
