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.
At family get together events I had fun watching the UCF Knights and other college football games on Nantucket with Michael and showing him an my cousins photos of my excursions.
