I met John 32 years ago when I moved next door to him and Lisa. Long story short, 31 years ago he gave me instructions that changed my life in a very good and profound way. John has helped many with his knowledge and generosity. He has left a wonderful legacy and will be remembered and missed by many. There aren’t many of the “old school” guys left.
