John was one of the good guys walking around on this planet. We are all poorer for his loss.
Remember his quick wit and great (sometimes sly) smile? He was a guy who always got the joke, and probably before you did.
His ethics, integrity and knowledge, made us follow him from one Mortgage wholesaler to another.
Shawn, thank you again for bringing him down to see us last year. He was one of those rare people who made your day a little better, just by showing up.
