    I can't believe this....so shocking.

    I have known John for more than 20 years; I raised a pup for him. I knew him as a friend as well. I just can't believe this.

    I don't know what to say

    I always liked John's dry sense of humor and his innate ability to liven things up.

    I appreciate a man who speaks his mind and doesn't back peddle and John certainly possessed those traits.

    A larger than life presence on this forum and I for one will miss his wit and feisty good natured ribbing.

    Rest in peace John.

    What a shock, I only knew John through RTF posts, his dry wit always one for a good conversation. Thanks John, will miss your questions and comments. Say hi to Howard N. Peace be with your family.

    No, No, No! I loved hearing from this man. Agree or not, a well spoken true icon of the games. Life is fragile, never forget.
