I had the pleasure of meeting John about 10 years ago. I bought 3 or 4 engines from this guy who was cleaning up his property. He had an old Chevrolet car engine and I was not really interested in it, but he begged me to take it for 25.00 I brought it home and stored it for awhile and then decided to see if a member here could use it. I put an ad up here and John contacted me. He had as old Chevrolet that was his prized possession. I sold him the engine cheap and found a member who delivered it to John at Coolspring. After that, we talked on the phone several times and he told me he was in the SeaBees and stationed near me at Quonset Point RI. John knew allot about Rhode Island and he told me stories about his adventures chasing down antique cars. I knew several of the people he befriended when he was here. He led a colorful life. Last year I read with sadness that he had fallen on ill health and was going to have an auction in the fall and sell his lifetime collection of stuff. He never made it. 9 days after he posted his intention to have the auction, he passed away. So sad. I will never forget John. A very smart friendly man who would help anyone that needed it.
