Dear John, I just heard of your death this weekend while at a Loyola reunion. I was deeply saddened, to say the last. You were a close friend, an outstanding teammate, and a role model that recommended Loyola to me. You were also a wonderful son and brother. May you rest in peace.
Lori (Lorna) O’Connell left a message on August 1, 2019:
Oh, Johnny, I am so heartbroken to learn of your passing. How I cherish those halcyon days growing-up together, along with your many wonderful siblings, the Ahern clan, the Gould kids, the Isaacs. You were the Leader of the Pack (Ringleader) of our non-stop games in the center of Concord Lane on those summer nights so long ago. I will hold those beautiful memories and those of you in my heart forever. Thank you for being such a loving childhood friend who grew into a man of uncompromising honor and integrity. May God and His angels hold you tightly for all eternity.

This was a surprise. There are people that I never dreamed would be passing from this life to the rewards of Heaven. John deserved this because he was such a good guy in this life. I will miss him.
