I grew up with John as my next door neighbor. He was a fun loving guy and use to call me on my birthday. I have not seen him though for around 40 years, but has remained in my heart throughout my life. I live in MN now, I will not be able to attend his service, but would love to send flowers if someone can send me the address of the service.
I have many fond memories of our growing up together in Palo Alto and will always remember him as a kind and gentle soul! God bless you John!
