Learned of John's passing last night, I worked with John through one of his long time clients. John was a great teacher, he helped you get to the right decision. I learned many things working with John. A good man and condolences to his family and friends. Will be greatly missed.

I married John and Cara. The wedding was small, intimate, warm and loving. The only downside was without a choir or professional singer our version of Amazing Grace was pretty lame.
John was a man of large appetites, a big heart, and generous spirit. Sometimes too generous. I asked friends to donate a few pads of paper for a village school in Nepal my foundation was supporting. My plan was to personally deliver the writing tablets on my next trip to the village. The day after my request was sent out I found 200 lbs of legal pads on my front porch delivered from John. How the hell was I supposed to carry all those legal pads in my pack on the 5-day trek through the Himalayas to Basa village!? I removed 80 of the pads - one for each student - and sent the rest back to John's firm postage due.
John was one of my closest friends in Law School and we remained close through that torturous experience, being young attorneys that didn't know "jack", birth of children, dads & kids trips to The Dunes and Pokagon, and several shared difficult personal & professional experiences. We were always there for each other if needed. I didn't know about John's final challenge and wish I had been there with him. But I am heartened knowing his loving family was with him.
Good bye, my big-hearted friend,

Rest in Peace John. You will be greatly missed. It was an honor and privilege to have worked with you . I still have the doodle you did for me hanging in my office. I think you could have been as great an artist as you were an attorney. My sincere condolences to his entire family and his life long friends.

My heart goes out to John's family and loved ones. You have been and will be in my thoughts and prayers.
