I spoke to John`s wife this last Tusday ( May 5th, 2017 ) and she shared that the meet at WSU , worked together at Echo Glen in Snoqualmie Falls. Were married 22 years when John passed away. They has a great marriage and the cancer came at the age of 47 and took his life.

Karen will be able to see what classmates say about John that new him from school. So please take a few moments to make comments about John.

John and I were pretty good friends at Meadowdale Junior and continued to associate at MHS, although a little more remotely.  John was really bright, had a great sense of humor, and -- what I remember most -- was that he was always smiling.  Not a gaping grin, but a kind of "Mona Lisa" smile that looked like he saw the universe smiling at him and gave it a knowing smile in return.

I remember John pretty well from high school.   Always enjoyed talking to him and being around him.   Really a nice nice guy.   Sorry to hear he passed so young.
