John was a good man, a class act. No splash, or self promotion—he was solid. His affection for the Yankees, not withstanding. Always fun to talk baseball with John. He’ll be missed.

A really fine man that I admired all the time that I knew him. Knowing that John was a great Yankee fan, my wife asked him to help her get Yankee-Red Sox tickets for my wedding gift. He helped her get tickets directly in back of home plate at Fenway for a 1976 game. As I'm sure that John still knows, the Yanks won. He will be missed.
