So sad to see yet another classmate pass from this life.  Sounds like I will get to spend Eternity with him, though!  My condolances to the family.

John and I were roomates in a little apartment on 2nd street in 1963-4 going to Wichita State. We had some great times together. He was a very hard worker and went out of his way to help those in need particularly when his family needed him. Its great to see that he was surrounded by a large family and I am sure he was dedicated to helping them and they were the joy of his life.
