I knew John/Mike as a fellow classmate at Lawton High School. I would consider him a true friend during those years as he and I did cut up some in class. He was a avid basketball player and real nice guy. I lost track of him after graduation but am very happy with how his life turned out. I have thought and wondered about him many times since high school and am very sad to hear of his passing. My sincere condolences to his family.
