    Our thoughts and prayers are with you Diane and your family. John and I were good friends from Alhambra in Collinwood. I always keep a special place in my heart for my childhood friends. I know he will be missed by you all. God bless.


  4. I had the pleasure of working with John in my barbershop when he’d filled in. He was very passionate about his work and his family and referred to me like a daughter, that made me smile. He also worked with my dad as a barber. So sorry he had to leave this world to soon.

    Just ran across this today. John always talked about his family and we customers were better off for knowing John. Hope your family gets some peace from the comments.
