Many fond memories of our time together in the RHS bands. R.I.P. my friend.
I look back with fondness at the experiences we shared in scout troop 51 where your dad was a scoutmaster. My condolences to your family with the loss of an outstanding man.
Bill and Peter, we were so sorry to hear of Johns passing. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. My family often talks about how great our neighborhood was when we were kids growing up together. Keep your memories close to your heart.
Much love, Susan and Stephen Orbine (Tolley), Tom, Ellen, Kathy, Jennifer
I traveled cross country with Chris Wain, and John in the summer of 1974. We passed through many of the great national parks in the west and visited friends in San Francisco then drove north to Crater Lake and Mt. Rainer before driving back to Chicago where I parted ways with Chris and headed to a family wedding in Florida. It was a remarkable summer . John’s humor and optimism kept us all engaged. I’ll miss his wit and intellectual conversations. My condolences and thoughts to his family.
It was with great sadness that I learned of John's death via The Lafayette Class Notes. John and I were marching bandmates and his spirit lifted us all. As co-men of faith, his goodness radiated to all that were blessed to be in his presence. May his memory be for a blessing.
