I remember John as a strong man with deep convictions and the courage to stand up for what he believed in. I admire him for that. He is missed.

John called me "out of the blue" several years ago when he was still living here in California.  He reminded me that I helped him from time to time on his paper route; I reminded him of being a terrified passenger on his Vespa as he sped down the allys near Boswell....A good friend duing Randolph and Boswell but we drifted in different directions at THS.
