I never met the man but he always struck me as one of the good guys. Sad news indeed. Sometimes the foe is bigger than we are but that didn't stop him putting a good fight. Must be terribly hard for Melanie, my sympathy to you.

Really sad... I traded emails with him a few times and also really liked the guy. God rest his soul and my heart goes out to the survivors.

Through emails John helped me get my old truck back running so I could get to my cancer appointments. When I finished treatment John started his. We both had cancer in the same area both stage 4. It saddens me deeply that John lost his battle.

My deepest sympathy Melanie and family.

Sad. I had hoped that maybe we would see a post saying he was back on his feet. I know he's sailing someplace right now pain free. He did it on his terms and saw things only some of us can imagine. Truly an amazing person that touched the lives of many.
