To all of you that had the opportunity to know and care for my brother have shared an experience like no other. He was kind ,smart, funny and loved with all his heart. Many funny moments growing up with him and later in life with my family and his. One of the funnies stories was pulling one of his boats up Cove Rd from the water and the boat and trailer detached itself from the truck. We all scrambled out to try and catch it. Yeah right!!! Can't remember the outcome but we laughed about that for years. Awe. ....the infamous Uncle John as we called him. not the same without you and your phone calls. Johnny I miss you with all my heart and will meet up with you on the other side.

Sorry to hear of the passing of Jags. I recall him as a feared left-handed pitcher, in the CYO league, at Cummings Park. I thought for sure he'd go on the major league. Glad to see it appears he led a happy and successful life. Condolences to his family and friends.
