  1. John and I first met in seventh-grade homeroom at McMillan, Miss Knight’s class. I always admired his energy, his courage, his outspokenness, and his rambunctiousness. We hadn’t seen each other since undergraduate days at UN-O, but I’m very grateful that I knew him. I am hoping the very best for Gary and his family, and all John’s family and friends.

  2. To John’s Family….I just heard about John’s passing…my thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I had worked with John on the CHARTS project in Lincoln. He was a wonderful person and co-worker. He will be missed! Prayers and God’s blessing be with all of you during this difficult time.
