Not sure what to say?

Science tells me here on earth we can actually see light emitted from extinct stars. I will think of John that way.

Whether it was meeting at the grocery store or attending one of his and Beth's Christmas parties, I will miss our brief interludes touching on his favorite subjects - baseball, surfing in the old days, and Meet the Press...and that infernal LA Dodger ball cap. RIP John. You will be missed.

We are so very sorry and stunned to hear of John's passing. He was always so full of life, cheerful and interesting conversation. He had a great laugh and smile. He was a wonderful mentor to all the boys on the baseball and basketball teams over the years. He will be truly missed. We loved John. Rest in peace, good friend.

My sincere condolences to the family and friends of John Prince. Take as much time as you need to cope with your grief and always look to God, who loves us, for "everlasting comfort". (2 Thessalonians 2:16, 17)

I knew John from the mid seventies until now. We met playing on a softball team, Clean Jeans. John always had a great smile and an infectious laugh no matter the circumstance. He received the nickname Tommy Hawk for his sometimes unconventional swing. At the time we played I had a large St. Bernard who for some reason didn't particularly care for John. John had ridden his bicycle to a party at our house after a game and as he came up the long driveway Sigmund saw him coming and was off...

John was always a man with a smile, uplifting conversations, and ALWAYS genuinely inquired about how the family was; especially Shorty (aka: Alex). I will miss seeing him at weekly at Safeway. You will be missed, John. God speed. Our hearts go out to the family.
