I am so very sorry to hear of John’s passing. I have very fond memories of John from our days at Cherry Park and the fun Nancy, Rob, John and other friends had at Crazy Zacks in the late 80s. I moved away and lost touch, but will always have fond memories of John and he will be missed.

I was shocked and very saddened to learn of Johns passing today. I knew him from the Trivia Chatroom on Yahoo (before they closed) and believe me, you did not want to go up against John on any sports question! He was so personable but had a very sharp wit and sense of humor as well, We swapped dog and cat stories along the way. I'll miss his posts on Facebook. We lost a good guy for sure. Love and Prayers, Connie Kaylor ('Justfoster' (named for my beloved Corgi dog) in Trivia), Springfield, IL.

Dear Rob,
So very sorry to see today about your brother. What is unreal is that I was at Rebecca's yesterday and we were just talking about him and you! SO excited to see that you and Megan now have 2! Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Get in touch when you can and take care of your precious family!
