John was a good friend of mine. We had great times in and out of high school. After John moved to Arizona and I moved to Montana, we lost touch. We both moved back to Oregon at about the same time. We got together for dinner a couple times and had a great time talking about old times. John and his wife came up to the Resort to see us, I really enjoyed that day also. There were many times I sat in my boat fishing, and John would pop in my head. I had great memories of the time we spent together. I wish I would have spent more. John you will be missed. Your friend Jim Kielblock.
