So sad, to hear JT passed. He was such a stand up guy, total gentleman that made everything we did fun. Took me to Superbowl parties, and even though I didn't know anybody, he made sure I did. Fond memory, he took me to a pumpkin patch, we spent alot of time there, searching for the right ones. Then of course, we competed on best carving. I think he didn't know, I had wood carving tools... lol! Darn, life's not fair, took a good one, that's for sure! Will always miss, laughing and having fun, and the type of guy, that if time passed, he'd pick up, where we left off. Rest in peace.

You guys lived a few houses down from my grandma on Corillo in Terra Linda. Jonny and I played together all the time when we were young. I was surprised to hear of his passing. I have such fond memories of him. My condolences to the family.

Circa, More than a few decades ago somewhere in Terra Linda When asked why he didn't help his sister with the dinner dishes, Johnny raised both hands eye level while counter-rotating each hand, for effect and with a Johnny-smile, said: "my Dad said I shouldn't do anything that might hurt these hands". I've told this story, this "moment of Johnny" to several "hands-oriented" athletics including several PGA Tour Players, and,, one former Star Starting Quarterback for the Raiders. It never fails to get laughs but the response by the QB sums it all up i.e., a big grin, an OK-Nod of approval and the exclamation "the dishes", "that's one I never thought of".. Johnny knew of this QB having told me the was one of the best "big bomb throwers". Well, this Star QB knew of Johnny too. The Moments of Johnny 50, so short a time for so much more that might have been. But what can we do now:, rage as Dylon Thomas said,, "Rage against the dying of the light". Well, that too, in private, But just now are the days for family and friends to gather-memorably of a life lived, and in-of that solace, blunt their helplessness for fleeting of young life.. At that gathering, there will be talk and there will be stories. Some, although humbly told, will softly bring tears while still others more boldly told, will coach your tears into laughter and Johnny would only have it so. But at days end, it will be the predicate of the stories, the Moments of Johnny, that will make the Memorial enduring. And who does not like a good story? I know Johnny did, so don't be surprised if same good day a casual acquaintance begins to tell of a story wherein a young, star athlete to be, who when asked why he didn't help his sister with the dinner dish..........Well, the story could come full-circle because throughout the day to come, like those past, I will always tell that story, that good "Moment of Johnny", and I'll always tell it true. Good Bye Johnny. .
