John fought hard to get well enough to come to our 50 year reunion.  I'm so sad that he didn't make it.  He will be deeply missed.

So sorry John won't be with us this year. He was a true Viking!

John was always in my home room and made us all laugh, he was a great Viking and I loved his helmet he wore to the football game for the 45 reunion. God Bless you and your family, you will be missed.

John will be deeply missed by all who knew him and anyone who has attended our class reunions.  His sense of humor and his enthusiasm made each one of proud to be a Viking again.  He truely sailed away in Viking style and grace.

Oh that is sad. He really would have loved the 50th reunion even if he couldn't make the trip. He hung out with me and my friend Will at the 40th reunion. We all had a good time. He always remembered my birthday. He will really be missed by friends and family.

I did not know John personally, but I read his classmate profile and his kind comments he made.  I can see why so many people will miss him.   My blessings to his family.

So sorry to hear that John has passed away.  Lots of thoughts for his family.  I bet he was happy to see Carolyn and Mrs. Lacy.

John was responsible in great part for the BIOYA theme song and contributed the BIOYA Viking logo for our website. Always with a good attitude and a smile, John represented the finest in Viking and school spirit of anyone I ever knew, for his entire life.

I say as a friend and fellow Viking in the kindest of ways: BIOYA, John, you will be missed!
