I met John when I was 10 through my brother Steve. They were good friends. John would always stop and talk with me about anything anytime i stopped in his shop. I miss him very much as i know his son wife and all his family does as well. 5-18-08 Is a day that shocked everyone who knew John. He went doing what he loved. He was a excellent surfer,water man,bike rider and a first class man and family man. I don't believe we die only the body we have at the moment. Johns spirit is alive and well.
