John passed away Sunday morning around 11:45 am. Any and all arrangements will be given to the board as soon as they become available.

    God speed friend!

    Chesapeake Bay Power Boat Association has been nice enough to also have a memorium page.

    Information borrowed from CBPBA website.
    Visitation will be on Wednesday April 18 and Thursday April 19 from 3pm-5pm and 7pm-9pm.

    An informal service will be held on Thursday at 7:30 and friends are welcome to share their comments about John at this time.

    A Celebration of Life will be held immediately afterwards, time and place to be announced later.

    Brenda would like to thank everyone in the club that have been so supportive in these past few months, the cards, the calls, and the prayers were very much appreciated by John.

    John was a great guy, and taught me a lot. He was around this sport for a LONG, LONG time.

    RIP John.

    I can't talk about it right now, it's being handled by the Postal Inspector. Those guys don't mess around!

    What a shame. John was a great guy. I hadn't spoken to him in a long time and he called me Friday. We spoke for almost an hour and we planned on having lunch next week at the Bay Bridge Show.

    John was a part of CPBRA for a long time and was an old time racer as well.

    He could be a crass S.O.B - some loved him and some couldn't stand him. I really enjoyed him and we busted each others balls constantly. We also both couldn't stand K.B.

    One of my best memories was getting blasted at Ruth Chris in Baltimore and him thinking he was going to drive. We then held him up as we walked him over to the truck and put him in the passenger seat!

    He was a gentleman and he will be missed. God speed buddy - I will miss ya!
