John was someone who stood out, no matter what he did. John was a funny, smart, chatty, high energy guy who could irritate you one minute and make you bend over laughing the next minute. He was devoted to everything he put his mind to, and seemed to go at life at 180 MPH. I am extremely saddened by his departure. I guarantee he is now organizing the group in the waiting room of heaven. I'll continue to tell people stories about John, the stories always make people laugh and smile.

I was so sad to hear about John's passing. I worked with John for many years @ Sun Chemical in Mansfield, Ma. He was a great boss and a great friend. We enjoyed many Patriots games together. I will always have the great memories I shared with him. He was truly a very generous and caring person.

When the room began to glow, it was because John walked in to brighten the spirit. His personality was magnetic with many great memories that last forever for all who surrounded him. Generosity was his middle name, as he would take his shirt off to make someone else warmer. Thoughts and prayers for all who feel his loss, that their comfort can come knowing that one day they will see him again!

From the day I was born this man has been by my side with love and support through every elation and struggle. The brightness in his character is something that touched everyone who encountered him, but I was lucky enough to behold far more than that. His life's journey has always been that of admiration and inspiration to me, from my first introduction to music evolving to my body of work in Photography. I can credit no one person more in the support and encouragemnet of my careers. More than that his way of finding light in every facet of life was a gift he bestowed on us all. Words are such an infinitesimal attempt to express the love and friendship I shared with this man, the tears I yield could never embody the sorrow my heart endures. The only true justice I can lend to his legacy is to embody his character in the way I approach life, to live in his reflection, and to carry on what he passed to me.
