“I knew "Mr. Hitchings" as one of my professors at Radford College. He was so talented and yet equally humble. I graduated in December, 1971, in Music and later returned (1980-ish)for graduate school. After all those years, during which I had married and had three children, he passed me in the hallway in Powell Hall and nonchalantly said, "Hi, Mary Lou!" and kept walking, as if no time had passed since we last met. I have run into him several times over the past few...
“ John was very knowledgeable about music and other subjects. I enjoyed our chamber music sessions, performances.and lively discussions.
Condolences to his family.I'll miss him.
“Requiescas in pace. Alice Rubinstein
