Not sure what to say?

I met John a few times at Decodaquote events. He seemed like a man who lived his life with joy and made friends easily. My smpathy to his family in the loss of this fine man who shared his thoughts so well with others.

John Metcho's wit and warmth delighted countless Decodaquote puzzlers. I loved receiving his legal pages full of optimistic thoughts which I've quoted for years, and continue to do so. An instant friend, he'll be missed by many who never had the pleasure of meeting him.

To me John was the epitome of the word Gentleman. He was such a sweet soul, full of dignity, and warmth who made everyone he met feel special. I'm really going to miss his quick smile, great laugh and sense of humor. You were one of the good guys John and you will be missed by many. RIP
