      Condolences to the family. John and his infectious smile will truly be missed. He brought the sun everywhere he went. Sometimes his sun was firey. I first met John in hair school over 30 years ago. He was like a big brother to me. He introduced me to my Hair Essence Family after graduating from hair school. He has always been a protector, mentor, and coach. We shared some priceless memories, good laughs, and some good cries too. May you rest in peace, my friend.
