John was a brilliant man; his humor and warmth filled any room with joy. He could talk your ear off about any number of subjects but especially the things he felt passionate about. His passions include but are not limited to music, playing guitar, sailing, building and administrating linux servers, stock market trading, and he was fascinated with large format printers. John often said, “I am the greatest guitar player you know,” and he was not wrong. Another subject he enjoyed talking about was his children, he was very proud of all their accomplishments. He also loved his dogs, his favorite among which was his small chihuahua, Jax. John was truly larger than life.
