John had a beautiful singing voice. We were blessed to hear him sing on various occasions. I will always remember his childlike joy of amusement parks and I am pretty sure he visited every park East of The Mississippi at least once over the years. His trips to various casinos with my sister are legendary for their luck was phenomenal. Our family will miss him greatly but are secure in our belief that he is now singing with God’s choir of Angels.
