He was a true gentleman who was always ready for the next adventure.
As steady as an anchor. As true as a compass. John will be missed.
Just reading the other comments gives a clear picture of the impression and impact John left on all of us. Last season I had the pleasure of John's company for a day of cruising on my little sloop. A fond memory indeed. RIP to a great guy and true gentleman.

I was lucky enough to John as my boss at Sun Ship. What a kind and calm man he was. Nothing bothered him. A sharp mind yet always ready to listen. I was also lucky enough to share a few sails with him and his friend Honey. He will be missed by both Sandy and I.
John, thanks for being my mentor and navigator when bringing the Cavalier down the Jersey coast from Tom's River.We will miss your quiet but wise wisdom and your always helping hands. Fair winds will always be with you.Have a good sail.
John was one of those people who was always encouraging to me and my kids when we knew nothing about boats or sailing and made us feel so welcome. He was a man of integrity with many talents, but I am most touched by how he cared for Honey. He will be missed.

John was unique. He gave so much to his friends and to his sailing peers. The world is a poorer place without him.
Will miss your advice and sailing expertise and friendship
John will be remembered for his many and selfless contributions to Hance's Point. He will be missed.
John we will miss you and your smile. We will also miss your great experience in teaching us how to sail. Fair winds and following seas.
We had wonderful times with John sailing up the coast of New England, visiting every important nautical museum along the coast. John was a very lovable man. We extend our sympathies to his loved ones.
I will miss my sailing friend of many years. Always the warm and kindly pal. The memories of sailing on the northern Chesapeake and helping John construct a wooden service barge are mine forever. John used to say he liked to visit the water just to watch the earths tides. We will be missing you John.
My beloved brother John will be greatly missed. As kids growing up we shared many adventures together. Later in life we traveled to many places including Europe and Fl.
