John was my best friend for many years and although I thought never did understand him entirely, I really always did, and we were alike in many ways. We were almost exactly alike for a long time, and inseparable. We lost touch later in life and I missed him. Not nearly as much as miss him now. John was a good kid when I met him in school, in football (and what a great player he was and could have been if not for his injury), in music . . . a skilled and very feeling guitarist, and the privileged few years after high school that we were together, he was a good man. He had faults, as we all do, (and if I didn't say so here he'd have wanted me to write to in) but I could always count on him to be there for me, and he was always there when any of his friends needed him. He had that rare pairing of being physically outstanding and mentally superior to most. To quote, "It is the finest blade that is most easily blunted, bent, and broken. This has to be the case. I wish he would have stayed closer to me later on. Although that wish cannot be fulfilled, I wish, and I think, no, I am sure that we will meet again.

John, Dori, Robin, and Annie, your loss staggers me but I cannot imagine how you feel. I wish I had known of it sooner. I moved to Costa Mesa last summer and am only five or so miles from where the service was held. I would have been proud to attend if I had only known.

Your son and your brother, was a great person and a great man. I am proud to be able to call him my friend.

So many things to say my brother and none of it could do justice to describe how kind and honorable a friend you have been since we were 4 years old. Today I celebrate your life as I know you would not want me to mourn your passing. Sincere condolences to the Devereaux Family and the knowledge that I stand testiment to the many acts of selfless compassion I have witnessed in all the many years I have known John.
Vaya con Dios mi Amigo.

I knew John or "Bubba" as we knew him, from Club Med St. Lucia. He was an all round great guy. My sincere condolences to his family.
Sincerely, Kim Mittal
