  1. I remember John very fondly. He was one of the nicest guys in our class. He was very protective of his girls. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. So very sorry for your loss.

  2. I’m so sorry to hear of John’s passing. We were in 4th grade together and sat next to each other. We were often scolded for talking too much. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.

  3. Thoughts and prayers to my cousins . I love Johnny and him and I have such great memories over the years
    I will miss Johnny and always remember all the good times he and I have had over the year. Fly high my friend and say hi to my mom until we meet again.
