John was a great friend and will be missed my many. He and I (and ten others) worked together on the 2006 AGO National Convention in Chicago (and elsewhere!). John was in charge of the exhibits and vendors, and did a fabulous job. John, while not an organist, was a great friend of pipe organs, and successfully brought a stunning Schantz organ to the Geneva IL United Methodist Church. That will be one of his many legacies. John, we miss you.
