I also met John at Chicago Sam’s and worked with him for many years. We had a difference of opinion on occasion but friends we became and then he became one of our family. Sad we are but happy the pain for John is over. I will always look at the field behind my house and think of him and Mark hunting deer. Our deepest condolences to his family and friends.
