I grew up with John when he lived In California. I’ll always remember John’s laughter as being very contagious and also John’s personality was that as being larger than life. In my life he has taught me so much about living, and how to keep expanding and pushing all those self-imposed boundaries that we all have, they just hold us back from living a full life. John would always rise up and voice his opinion in support for the weak or for the oppressed. John also would hold stand fast to any of his commitments, or any of his beliefs, he would hold at any cost. A rare commodity of character, then, now and forever. John I have, and I will, always miss you..!!!

He sure did miss talking with you. He considered you a brother from another mother.

John was one of the kindest person I have ever known. He was positive, genuine, and always doing for others. The last time I saw him, he was doing just that, serving others. I will miss his kindness and warm smile. DJ

He was always smiling in our photos. Thanks for the comments.

John was such a wit. He had a brilliant and sketchy sense of humor and I'll miss him. He was such a supporter of his beloved Christine's KDW, and definitely added life to the party. We will miss this crazy man.

Thanks Amy, but I'm pretty sure he was more supportive of the Separator. LOL.

We, the KOE, will all miss John. He was a long time member of a big, extended family that all share his love of Mardi Gras, and all things New Orleans
