John was my FTO Sgt. and friend. Reflecting on the 32nd anniversary of his line of duty death brings a solemn reminder to never forget those that proceed us. I’m sure John will walk with God. I always remember him drinking coffee out of that Cleveland Browns mug he had. Even in a jacuzzi after a tournament in Vegas.
