I've known John practically all my life, but I wish I had known him better.

His unassuming manner belied the renaissance man we was. John knew something about everything, and everything about things that were his passion. He took the time and patience with every project to produce the best result, whether it involved his woodworking, his music, or creating and maintaining a home for his family. And probably a myriad of other things that I know nothing of.

He truly was a man of the world, taking and making the opportunities to travel, for work and for adventure with Kathy and Ian.

I'm so sad that he is gone and that we'll never enjoy his company again. I'm comforted, as I hope all his family and friends are, that John went quickly and was doing what he loved - traveling to a well researched destination, taking in and becoming a part of the world around him.

John was my quietly exotic (in my mind) brother-in-law who traveled to interesting destinations, lived in fascinating places, and played amazing music. He gave me an appreciation for the Rutherford dust and a bluegrass tune. Whenever I hear a mandolin (or a banjo...or accordion...), I will think of him.

Godspeed, dear John.

John was friendly, quiet and humble. I am not surprised to read about all of his great accomplishments in this world of which he never talked about. I just knew him from playing the mandolin. He was talented and fun to jam with and eager to learn or share a tune. I was in the Mandolin Orchestra with him for a while and it was an enjoyable time starting it up.

My sincerest condolences to his family.

RIP John may there be mandolins in heaven.

May your memories of the wonderful times you shared with your loved one comfort you and your family, today and always.
