Its just not real, my first "boss" and life long friend... You made me laugh, filled my heart with love and joy... You fought hard to be happy and endured some of lifes most tragic hands... But through it all, you never gave up and fought the good fight...

34 years with you in my life... Not a day will you be forgotten...

I first met John as a coworker at the Riverside Mall Cinemas in 1983. Although he was a few years older than me, we quickly became good friends and had a great time working together. In the years that followed my military service, school, and career took me away from CNY, but John and I always stayed in touch and spent time together whenever I visited the area. The past 37 years would not have been the same without John, and neither will whatever time remains for me. My deepest condolences to John's family and friends. He will be greatly missed.
