Taught John at Pinewood. John along with his friends were one of the reasons I enjoyed being a teacher! My prayers are with you during this heartbreaking loss. He left us much too soon and I know that you will miss all the things that made him a unique and irreplaceable member of your family. God bless you.

I´m so sorry to hear this. I was an assistant basketball coach for Pinewood when John was a senior. Coach Eidson and I always talked about what a good athlete John was. He also had a Hollywood smile. He was a nice and kind young man. My prayers are with him and his family.

I never had the opportunity to meet John but I know he was a loved man. My heart breaks for the family and Terri. May God wrap his arms around each of you and give you strength to move forward. RIP John and suffer no more.
