I had the pleasure Of knowing John for the past twelve years of my life. The first time we met we went to a Philadelphia 76ers open practice at the Bryce Jordan Center. I spent many Sunday afternoons at his house eating lunch and talking about Sports, mainly Penn State football and countless arguments about the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles. Spending holidays with John was also one of my favorites. He had a rough and tough exterior, but he had one of the biggest hearts. I love you and I will miss you. I will always think of you when i am watching Cowboys/Eagles games. RIP my friend.
