    I just learned of John’s passing. I was a good friend through college. He was always a wonderful, intelligent, warm hearted man. He always had time for people and was never judgmental. He had incredible talent and a independent vision of life and art. I admired him immensely. I will miss him and he will always have a special place in my heart. The great times and memories we shared will always be with me and now even more precious.
