Brother John, I happened to come across the news of your passing. It's been many, many years since we've seen each other. We met at church and I knew you wnen you fell in love with your sweet wife. I believe she was working at Hecks and you at Armco and you were living up that dirt road behind Melody Mountain (I think). You taught me many things including the dynamics of electricity and electronics. You gave me books to study from UEI. You unselfishly shared all you had with me without reservation. We worked on cars together, you gave me an engine from an old Chevy Nova and helped me put it in an old Chevy station wagon. My old friend I look forward to seeing you again some day. We will talk cars and about the fun times back in the 60's and 70's. I've thought about you many times over the years and I consider myself a better man for knowing you as are so are many others, I'm sure. Rest easy my friend, you are not alone.

See you soon buddy,

George Smith

I was very sorry to hear of John's passing. I had the privilege of knowing him at Fairview High School (Class of 66’). I will keep the family in my prayers as they go through this valley.
