We are so sorry to hear about the passing of your beloved father John. He was a great person and my kids loved to see him. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

...I met John in 1983 at NTEC and we stayed in touch with many recovery, political and theater discussions ever since. John was a very smart guy and well-liked by all the people that knew him. He was one of the great people that kept it to principles and talked about science, the world at large, and was very cognizant of people who needed help. I'm sure he'll have front-row seating and be a staple in the Big Meeting in the Sky...

John was a joy... Such a delightful sense of humor with a quick smile and that Irish twinkle in his eyes. John embodied his beliefs, which he shared with others through example and action. He will be dearly missed by his many grateful friends.

I have known John for 29 years, and my husband has known him for 39 years. Way to go John! He was consistently a good man and absolutely a joy to be around. Always so kind to us and everybody else. We are so privileged to have him as a friend and will miss him terribly. My condolences to the family

The last time I saw John he did a little humble brag about how he would get out of tickets because the officers were impressed with the fact that he was able to get around so well for his age. It was always nice to see that mischievous grin of his. He was a great artist, a loyal patron of the arts, and a friend. We're all going to miss him.

John was such a light hearted spirit and fun to be around! Always a joy when we got to catch up! Saw him in Christmas Carol and he was great! Always one to try new things with an open mind too... that's unique.

Whether it was AA or Acting we had some great and grumpy conversations. Rest my friend.
