John was and is a good friend and I always had a good time when I was around him. I first met John in 10th grade at Pacific High. He played football and I got to know him better when I joined Pacific High Vikings Football Team. We had great fun our Jrs and Senior year on the team. After graduation, we would bump into each other every now and then. We reconnected for awhile in the 80's, but lost contact due to changes in life. The next time I heard anything about John is that when he was a Taxi-cab driver in Sacramento,Ca. He was shot in the head by a client he picked up for a fare one night. My guess is that the person he picked up tried to Rob John, and knowing John, he probably resisted and was Shot and Murdered by that person. Fairwell John and Rest in Peace.
Your Friend and Buddy
