  • John was a good H.S. friend and was always a guy I loved to see over the years. Rest In Peace John. Ray BeaupreNAHS 1961

  • I am so sorry for your loss. John always had a smile on his face and was always so kind and friendly. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  • Angie ,your Mom & Mrs. Carr I am so sorry to hear about loss. May God wrap his arms around all of you to get through the days ahead. Thinking of you.

  • John invariably livened up my day. We both participated in a wellness program at Study Hospital. He was usually the first person who greeted me on entering the facility and he was always great fun to chat with. Naturally I loved him- everybody imagined him to be their buddy. I have been trying to recall our conversations, as they are very fond memories but now at the moment it is all a little surreal- I only learned of his passing today and last bantered with him a scant few days earlier. My compassion goes out to his family.

  • I am so sorry for your loss. John was a wonderful man. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. God bless.

  • John, it was an absolute pleasure having known you over the past 70+ years. Your laugh and smile always made my day better. I will miss not running into you on occasion in Stop & Shop. Rest in peace brother, until we see each other again.
