My big brother John was a man with a quick wit and a big heart. He was an adventurer, father, brother, and lived life to the fullest. I'll always remember my first puppy, a spaniel, which he gave me as a birthday present when I was a young girl. Mom was not too pleased. Still he had a great way to make you feel at home wherever you may be. I've missed him and as time passed, I realized I need to add my name to his legacy, rest dear brother, with all my love

To the man who taught me a large degree of sophistication and added to my world a touch of class, for which without him, I would have likely ended up another country bumpkin with nothing. Glad he was sent my way in life.

I met John in 1975 while dating his sister Jane. I became friends with the entire family. His sense of humor came, I believe, from his mother. She was a quiet strong woman with a ton of class. John was not as subtle as his Mom but somehow was always at the center of things. He was quick to smile and enjoyed a practical joke even when it was directed at him. He was the only man I knew who could party all night and never leave the chair he was sitting in. He and his family introduced me to their hotel on Padre Island in Belize. The vacations there with his and my family were magical and remain in our memories and conversations to this day.

We spent a lot of years trying to figure out women. We sailed the Caribbean in storms, went aground on an Island that held the Shaw of Iran in exile and were surrounded by men with guns. We had boat races on Hobie Cats & and sinking British zodiacs. With feet propped up on the mast of a 41 foot Morgan in Paradise Island Bahamas we listened night after night to Lester Muldoon and his Cadillac Cowboys. A spoof on western music I can still here the prolonged laughter that brought tears to our eyes. Those are my memories of John.

John will be missed but never forgotten.

Dear Janet and Family:

My husband,Hank and I went to Rumson High with John and we have many fond memories of some great times together. I remember in those days in Home Room we would be seated in alphabetical order, I, being La, would always sit in front of John, Lo. He was always a great story teller, and very bright, and I loved our little visits each morning before we were told to be quiet. I had a terrific conversation with John last summer and I'm so sorry I didn't get to meet you. He spoke so highly of you and had such pride in his daughters. He was blessed with a wonderful family, many, many friends, and although his life was too short, he lived it with style.
With great affection,

Hank and Jane Boardman

Dear Janet & family,
My heart goes out to you. Even though I only went to Rumson Fair Haven H.S. for one year, I remember John as the nice person he was, always smiling and a kind word for all. God Bless you and your family; it's hard to lose your best friend and the love of your life.

Six years ago today John told me he was smitten with me on sight, (he even went home and looked up the word to see what had happened to him). Those few words changed my thinking and my life for the better, forever. I will always love him, he was the best husband and friend anyone could be blessed with.
Your loving wife, on Smitten day 2002.

Dear Janet,
I am deeply saddened to hear that John has passed away. He was a classmate of mine at Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School and I remember him as being a nice guy, very handsome and always ready for a party. I am so sorry he was unable to attend our class reunion last September, as I would really have enjoyed talking with him and meeting you. Please accept my very deepest sympathy and extend my condolences to your family.

To the family of John: I am a former high school classmate of John and considered him a friend during our high school years. I believe everyone considered him a friend. My strongest recollection of John is that he was always happy, usually with an obvious smile. I have no doubt that he carried his optimistic view into later life and thus influenced his wife and children, who will carry on with the same belief that the glass is at least half full. Leaving us at 59 is too soon but some have left sooner. I suspect John's illness prevented him from attending our recent reunion in September, 2001; I would have liked to catch up with him. Condolences to his family. Norman Haase

Dear Janet, My twin brother Paul and I went to high school with John in Rumson. I remember one summer John joined us on a sailing cruise our family took in Long Island Sound. We had so much fun on that cruise. I knew John as a strong, handsome, kind, and gracious guy, and a good sailor. I was so saddened to hear of his death, and send you my deepest sympathy. Sue Smith

Janet, I went through high school in Rumson with John. He was enormously well-liked and respected by his classmates - always gracious and friendly to everyone - and will be missed. Our thoughts are with you.
