I remember what a brave boy John was. Even in the 7th & 8th grades he stood up for his political principles, which were different from those of our teachers. I didn't understand or appreciate him at the time, but I do now. I'm sorry to hear that he has passed. My deepest condolences.

I agree with Judith. He influenced me to stay "republican" even though it looked like there would be a Catholic president. I remember his dad was the Mayor of St Clair Shores.

I also remember John during our class Kennedy-Nixon debates.  John represented the Republican point of view admirably even though the Kennedy Democrat side ounumbered him greatly.   He did a great job and was well spoken.
