Greg Tomchick: "John was a true mortorcycle rider! No windshield, no radio, NO JACKET! I sat next to him in Lucerne Valley mex restaurant at the last ride. He was telling me all about his career in plumbing, nomads, stratoliners, etc. I admired everything he did for the group and admired him as a person. I always liked sitting by him. a SAD day... RIP JOHN!"
Bob Barbano: "In good weather or bad, John always rode his bike without a windshield. He truly loved the wind in his face....and now, he'll be watching down on us, with the wind in his face. We love you John, and will miss you".
