Not sure what to say?

At DSMC, John worked for me and (later) I worked for him. He is a true gentleman and a man of great integrity. I will miss him.

John was an inspirational fellow professor at DSMC/DAU. We often taught together in advanced courses. He was a subject expert who cared about his students. He refused to give in to the PC left.
RIP John & for his family please accept my sincere condolences. I will miss him.

I love this man. Jerome Bennet

Good christian man, loved everyone, humble, great personality. Miss You.

Mr. Riffee has a very serious character and was not the kindest of folks I'd met. However, he always used to tell me about meeting Jesus Christ our Lord

Lt. Col. was my squad commander in Vietnam. Charlie knew him by name. His fortitude against the NVA and Charlie shall forever be with us.

John was quite a guy! I did enjoy getting to know him. He could always make me laugh. I will miss him.

John was a true gentleman. I had the good fortune to have met him at his lovely Virginia home. Men like this are becoming very rare these days. RIP John.
