  1. An old friend, I bought my first house from John. He was a great public servant and overall nice guy. Tragedy struck his life, but it did not steal his joy. Rest in peace.

  2. My deepest condolences to the family. Remember you are not alone at this difficult time. "God is our refuge and comfort, a help that is readily found in times of distress." (Psalm 46:1) He cares for you. (Revelation 21:4)

  3. I am deeply moved by to hear about the passing of a very dear friend and business associate from the early days of my real estate career. John was always there with a helping and guiding hand and that was so very gratefully appreciated. One of the most kindest caring true "gentlemen" I have ever had to pleasure to know, a true friend. Va avec dieu, mon ami!Love you, Chris

  4. I was out of town and just found out about John a sorry to hear of his passing. I thought a lot of John he helped me get on at Citgo.
