I hadn’t heard anything about John for years
We were on the 1971 Clinton High School wrestling team together
He wrestled heavyweight and I wrestled 185 lb
Neither one of us were very good but we made the best of it.
Always enjoyed John’s sense of humor
So sorry to see he had passed away

I met John when he moved to the beach, he lived in the condo under me. He had great taste in music, worshipped the Rolling Stones.
We have seen the Who, John Prine, Aerosmith, to name a few. Went to Vegas about 4 times, Jamica, Columbia, and many florida trips. His saying (he's seen everything but the wind, been everywhere but the electric chair)..
He was a good friend for the 10 years I knew him on the beach. He will be missed.
