My memory is of him and I playing in Crystal Ball Band. He showed me a lot of things about running sound that I still use to this day in my Sound Company. I had just talked to him thru messaging a few hours before I got the call of his passing. I will and still miss him to this day. This is a way that I can say see you my brother soon.

I knew John as a union brother. Both of us served as local officers in NABET-CWA. We met at annual meetings, conferences, and conventions. Our conversations were always spirited and I looked forward to spending some time with John each year, and to conversing with him on e-mail. He was a gentle, friendly man with a great sense of humor. He will be missed by all who knew and served with him.

I am completely in shock reading of John's passing. He contacted me last week through Facebook. We talked of how we both missed my husband James Rieck (WD8DDL). Jim told me a story of how they would get together at our house in Bethlehem over the Christmas holidays and talk to fellow amateurs "from Bethlehem". We were planning on getting together soon. Rest in Peace John. I know you're up there now talking radio with Jim.

I have very fond memories of getting to play music with John in the Ohio Valley for a lot of years in Sweet Harmony/Harvest. He was such a talent! He could play almost any instrument and play it pretty darn good. He always had a great attitude and came prepared to entertain and show the people a good time. I was always in awe of his guitar talents being a guitar player myself. He could nail those classic Rock & Roll leads and make it look easy. John, you will me remembered and missed greatly!

John and I took a long walk together in Pittsburgh last Sunday. He stopped at a bench along the way where a young couple were playing guitar and singing a song that they'd written. He complimented them on their music and spoke to the young man about his guitar. John was a friendly, happy, generous soul. I'll miss talking and writing to him. He always had a word or two of wisdom for me. He will be greatly missed.

My deepest sympathies to John's family. I just saw him on Tuesday and he was happy about losing some weight and walking on the track after work. He was dedicated to the Union and he is going to be missed dearly. Thank you John for all your dedication to helping your fellow co-workers and your Union brothers and sisters. We are going to miss seeing you every year. Rest in peace and watch over us all.
