1976 was the beginning of a friendship that would continue until Monday January 28th 2013.
I had the pleasure of meeting the Satko family; but John and his sister Julie have remained a part of my children and my life. John and my sons Clyde and Darrel were the best of friends and had many adventures and spent a lot of time together.
As it happens in most families, each child changes and moves on with their lives; but through the moves, marriages and children they have always stayed in touch with each other.
I don't ever recall seeing John angry or mean to anyone.
He will be missed more than words can express.
I am so thankful to have known you John.
