So sorry to hear of John's passing. I served with John from 1987 to 1989 during our initial training in the Army. He was an interesting guy and a good friend. I came across the below photo last week as I was sorting through all of my photos and documents after my recent retirement from the Army. The photo is of John in 1989 in Monterey, California. My condolences to his family and friends. ~ Scott Applegate

I am very sorry to hear that John passed. You and your family are in my prayers during this difficult time. I would like to leave you with two quotes. The first one is from Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, "Those who learned to know death, rather to fear and fight it, become our teachers about life. " The second quote is "When you speak of John speak not with tears for thoughts of him should not be sad. Let memories of the times you shared give you comfort for his life was rich because of you." - Author Unknown

With love at this sad time,
Dena Marques
