I knew the Col when I worked on Kwajalein, he was a good man and Commanding Officer.

We were shocked and grief-stricken when we arrived at the RPI reunion expecting to see John after 51 years of missing him. He was a great friend, fraternity brother, and roommate during our college days. Both Nancy and I were so looking forward to the event. Though we never met you, we send sympathetic condolences to Ashley and Caroline because we know John was a great father to you both.

I met John thru the 709th/99th reunion group. I was able to get John and Sherrill Chaffin, the 1st and 3rd commanders of HQ&A Company, together for a dinner in Huntsville a few years ago. The 2 of them had never met--we talked and looked at pictures from Vietnam for 4 hours--it was a real treat and the 1st time I saw Chaffin since the day I left Vietnam in 1968.
John was so much fun to talk to at the reunions, and I was also able to meet Koney at one reunion too---I can tell you for certain they are missed at our reunions. My deepest sympathy.

My most heartfelt condolences. Though John preceeded me by a year in Hq & A Co., 709th Maint Bn. his influence permeated the company. Thus I knew him well then, though we never met until he contacted and "persuaded" me to travel with him from Huntsville to the 709th's reunion in Maryland in 2011, my first time to attend. We repeated the trek in 2012. He was missed immmensely in 2013. It is my loss that I did not meet him sooner. What a great person!!!

I will miss John because he and Konny were true friends. My wife Mary Van was very close to Konny. John was trying to help me get over the loss of my wife in June.
