This is a very sad update regarding the passing of John. The tight knit class of 66 has lost another very nice classmate. I had a couple classes with John and can still recall us sharing some very humorous laughing episodes overall. I want to retain those very positive thoughts from those days back then.

Rest in Peace, John.

So Sorry to hear about John’s passing. I remember him well in high school. After reading about his life. I believe it should be a celebration of the honorable life he led. 

Prayers and loving thoughts to his family during this difficult time. 


Sincerely, Jean Wyatt-Sullivan

Johnny, was one of my close friends growing up. We spent a lot of time together on the streets in Edgemont. I knew Johnny well. We lost track or each other when we went in the military. I joined the Navy and Johnny went into the Army. We never saw each other after that. I had heard that he became a minister but didn't know where. Too bad I didn't know where he was because he wasn't far from me. It would have been nice to reconnect. Rest in peace my friend.
