I just found out about John’s passing and am heartbroken. When I met him at Sunset B&G 25 years ago I knew there was something very special about him. His friendship meant the world to me and we kept in touch over the years, but hadn’t spoken in many months. I will always cherish the memory of John. He was one in a million. Rest in peace buddy. S

I just found out about John’s passing. John and I met back in 2002 when he was living with his roommates (Joel and Matt? ) We hung out for a while and made a lot of funny memories together. What I remember the most was his sense of humor and laughing on the phone for hours at a time. I had the pleasure of meeting his awesome family, which he loved so much. He absolutely adored his mother. We lost touch over the years, but he will never be forgotten. Rest In Peace Noodlehead!
