Very sad news, John really supported ROCS and me personally in my position as Treasurer.
He was a good friend. I sure will miss him.

Joan and I will say a prayer for John and his family. Sorry to hear of his passing.

I never know what to say when things like this happen but I hope that he's in a better place and will keep his family in my thoughts and prayers. It's especially sad to lose a founding member with an obvious passion similar to many of our own.

Prayers all around for the family. John didn't go half way with his collection or what he was looking for, he went all out. He will be missed.
