Not sure what to say?

John was the sort of man who could inspire a band (Library Voices) to dedicate an entire album (John) to his presence in the world. I can't think of any more fitting tribute, given his love of music and the band. He was the person "would give you the shirt off his back" was designed to describe. John in his cups unleashed the inner puppy that infused all of his relationships - his warmth and humor overflowing his ability to express them. I feel his spirit is as close today - five...

Mrs. Farrell,

We were just told about the passing of John. We are so sorry to hear of your loss. Please know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I will sadly miss John's winning smile and quick wit.

I knew him from Empire State - unbelievably helpful, an instant friend.

I will miss John terribly. After meeting and becoming friends in the '70s (through WBFO), we remained in regular contact after my move to Toronto, with frequent cross-border visits throughout the '80s and '90s. Communication dwindled with my temporary move to Asia in 2000, but I was lucky enough to see him again at the WBFO reunion. He will always be in my life.

TP, I was not aware of your loss until today or I would have come to the funeral home. Doug joins me in offering our sincere condolences and please know that we will keep you and your family in our prayers. .

Deepest sympathy to family and friends. The mutual friends we had always spoke highly of him, and I always respected his experience.

I will always think of John as one of those who always asked "what if..." or "another view might be...". The discussions at Rick & Jane's will be a wee bit missing without his input. RIP

Shocked to hear the news. I can't recall exactly when I last saw him, but I'm sure that it was at a concert...
