John, you've blazed trails that will be followed for generations and generations to come. Truly one of the founding fathers of Virginia Speleology. It has been a honor to have caved with you ... to have known you.
Linda, prayers are with you

I have great memories of caving with and working with John for more than 50 years--hundreds of caving trips and a dozen or so papers. My sympathies and condolences to Linda.

We are so saddened to hear of the loss of such a fine person. God does not leave us without the hope of being reunited with him again. Acts 25: 14, Isa 26:19. We hope this will bring you comfort in the days ahead. 2 Cor 1:3-7.
