John and I dated when I was in high school and he was in college. He was always very nice. We have been friends on Facebook for awhile. It sounds like he was a great father to his daughters a a friend to all. He has left a large family behind; I am sure you all have fond memories of him. My condolences to all of you and may you find comfort in your memories and in each other.
