Hello family. Many prayers and respect to you. I appreciate John helping me locate other members of the extended family. He brought more people into my family after there was a lost for many years. We are very appreciative for this connection. His effective skills of engagement and fellowship will always be remembered. Sincerely, Lisa Shellman and family, Virginia Beach Virginia.

In the short time I knew John I discovered and came to know of his love and passion for helping others;especially young people. We spoke of doing joint projects to help youth earn scholarships through their love to learn,play and excel in chess.I can still see the beam in his eyes as we discussed the possibilities.... Rest in peace Dear John. You will be missed. Dr Zenobia Sowell
