I knew John through my position at the British Library and various international cataloguing groups in the 1980s and 90s. and enjoyed his company. My sincere condolences.

John was a cherished giving friend and an amazing colleague. I worked with John in many capacities with the most important one being with IFLA and its Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records in my role as its chair. John received the highest accolades through the American Library Association and worked endlessly in generous support of international colleagues to further worldwide sharing of information. He will be missed and my heart goes out to Billy and the rest of his family.

To Billy and the Family: May God bless you and give you strength and comfort in your time of grief. John was my chief for more than twenty years at the Library of Congress always kind and willing to help. I went to him because I wanted to take classes outside the library and he allowed me to do so because he knew that would provide me an opportunity to be promoted. I will always be grateful. Rest in peace John, you will be missed.
