John was one of my best nutrition clients and then he turned into my savior accountant after my husband Mike passed in 2006. Even though I moved away from South Florida, this sweet man saw me through some tough times in the last 5 years. My physical self could not be at his memorial service due to an acute health problem but my spirit was definitiely there. Our loved ones remain with us, just in a different way. Donna, Lauryn & Alex you now have a powerful protector on the other side! I pray that can give you some comfort during the months and years ahead.

John was a good friend. It was always a pleasure to speak with him, especially about his many adventures. The last time I saw him he said he was planning to go scuba diving. John, I hope you catch the biggest and best lobsters there are. You will be missed.

I was shocked and saddened to hear this news of John's passing. I was honored to serve with John on the board of our American Society of Appraisers (ASA) South Florida chapter and will miss the many conversations we had about his family, sports and baseball games with his son. Your father was well respected in our group and he will be missed by more people than you may know.
My thoughts and prayers are with him and your family.

I know we had a rough time these past few years because of you addiction but I never stopped loving you or praying you would be cured. You had a magnetic energy that pulled people to your friendly personality. You and mom made sure that Alex and I had everything we ever needed or wanted as we were growing up and I believe I had a charmed childhood. I'll never forget our yearly family trips to Utah and Disney. I miss you dare devil buddy! Love you Daddy!
