Not sure what to say?

Jack was a great guy, we called a few B-Ball games together and always had a beer afterwards. Loved working with Jack, color blind and hard of hearing, but stood tall on the court. See him at Rec. Center and would always tell him I had a green shirt cause I loved teasing him. Rest in peace Jack

John was a fellow classmate at East Greenwich H.S. in Rhode Island. We played together the football field and basketball court and he excelled in both sports, especially the hard court. More importantly, he was a great friend, with a tremendous sense of humor. It was great to reconnect with him at our 50th reunion.

May he rest in peace.

John your life was full but too short. Prayers of peace to you and your family. Your High School home room friend Paula Shea Tibbitts.

I miss you, John.


From all the members of the Class of '66 in East Greenwich, RI - we send our heartfelt condolences to John's family and friends. He attended our 50th reunion three years ago and we were all so happy to see him after so many years. It was a great night. All of the athletes in our class had nicknames, usually concocted by my husband, and his was Wheatless! He was a great guy and wonderful athlete. May he rest in peace. Warm regards, Donna and Jim Bowen
