Wow, this is no way to end my Saturday night. So sad to hear this, my condolences to Gail and family.
I first met John in April of 2007 at a Hot Dog GTG that started in Middletown NY (when I first met several other RF people too). After that tour ended I got to know John & his wife a little bit better when he offered to lead me by car to the Brewpub in New Paltz for a beer or two. We crossed paths a few other times after that, always a pleasure.
What amazed me the most was that he was in his late 70's at the time and appeared so much younger, not only in looks but just, in, I don't know, Joy of Life I guess. You will be missed, John.
