We grew up together as kids and played baseball together in the Edgewater neighborhood of Foster and Sheridan. Super nice guy and very responsible. He had a younger brother who was deaf and johnny looked after him. I thought about Him when I was watching a show about a police officer who was killed in the line of duty. I’m glad this blog is here. He was a great stand up guy.
