J was one of my best friends. We met at IBM in 1991 and immediately became good friends. We worked together for 6 years and then started a business (CEO Consulting) after IBM left Boca. We ran that business for 10+ years, where we generated over $50mil in revenue and employed over 1000 people. Remarkably, we never even had a signed agreement. We didn't need one. I trusted J and he trusted me and we always did the right thing.

He loved his family and I know he learned the meaning of life when JJ was born. I feel like J and I grew up together in our early 20's as we raised our sons and ran a business. We went to many UM games together and always cheered on the Fins and Canes. We also went to the Daytona 500 for 12 years in a row (with JR Fitch), where we saw our beloved #3 in his last crash. J only had a few friends in this world (I know he loved Will and JR for sure), but thats all he needed. He was the most loyal guy I've ever known. He was very good with technology and could figure out how to solve any problem and he had an incredible ability to analyze a problem and come out with a solid solution.

I think of him often and selfishly wish I could pick up the phone and hear his voice. We enjoyed more Coors lights than 2 people should and I wish I could toast a canes win one more time with him. He was a true friend, a great father, and a devoted husband to both Irene and Tracey. He was a simple guy who really didn't need much. Money didn't mean a whole lot to him compared to his family and friends.

I'm raising a cold Coors light to you my friend and appreciate our nearly 30 years of friendship. I doubt I'll ever find another buddy like you.

I remember J as a devoted father to his son JJ during all the years my son played baseball with JJ. Please accept our family's condolences.

Dear Carolyn, Tracy, Kelle, and family:
I offer my condolences for J's far too early departure. I don't think I have seen him some 40 years but William kept me informed so I feel I continued to know him. I appreciate that William regarded J as the brother he never had.
May your memories of the good years sustain you all.
