Me and John were close buddies during grammar school! Sadly , like so many times, we kind of lost touch after that - me going to M-A after spending a short time at Serra! John was quite an athlete - someone to be looked up to! As I have heard this from many after relaying the news of his passing! I remember when trying out for Babe Ruth Baseball, I was deeply hoping I would be picked by the team "AIA" Why?? Because that was the team John was on! We would have been lasting teammates! Like I said, we slipped away from each other in the passing years! We did have an 8th Grade Reunion and everyone was so glad to see him! I, on occassion, would run into him in downtown Menlo - we would reminesce and laugh of shared experiences! He was a good person with a big heart!!!
