    I worked with John at the Post Office. He was a hard worker. Every supervisor he worked for said only positive things about his work and his great attitude. John was a good man, had a sweet spirit and was friendly. I am sorry for his family.

    So sorry to hear about our loss of Johnny. He was a friend and neighbor to my children. I love remembering how he rode his bike- hands outspread, yelling his enjoyment at the top of his lungs, even though he didn’t hear himself-the entire neighborhood did, and smiled.He was in Boy Scouts with my sons, just like many of their friends. His mother was a Scout leader and Dutch lead the Webellos, where Johhny exelled. They raised a great family. We all loved Johnny. He never felt different, and we never thought of him as being different-before he learned to sign, none of us did either; he would come to the door, knock and say “Buuuu” his brother Butch was often there, or “Miii”(my son is Mike, or simply come inside. No problem-he got his point across, as I am sure he did all his life. Many years later, after they all grew up, my daugher would see him at a local bar she was working as a coctail waitress as a second job (Johhny at a bar???) and told me how often he kept tabs on her and interferred when someone tried to “hit” on her. Always the protector.
    We are all better people for knowing Johnny. He’s at a better place, and I, for one, hope to see him again and have a long talk with that boy!
    What a kid he was- all boy and a joy to know. My family will miss him.
