I will remember John as having a zest for life and for his his infectious laugh. We would walk our dogs in a local park in Royal Oak MI. I lost touch with John after his stroke. Rest in Peace dear John. - Dan Godek

John was a great friend of mine for many years. I lost contact after his stroke but kept trying to find him. I am glad he will at least be at peace now. To all those who loved him I am sorry for your loss. He always helped me through difficult times, yet was good for a laugh as well. He will be greatly missed
