This young man's headstone reads: A precious one from us has gone. A voice we loved is stilled. A place is vacant in our home which never can be filled...
John didn't get too far past his 18th birthday and is missed by many. At his young age he was a very knowlegeable individual in a niche area of the collectible automobile hobby:identifying, restoring and displaying hearses and related vehicles. While working on his specialty automobile in the garage on Christmas day he was overcome by fumes and in making an effort to get to fresh air just didn't make it. He was written up in Car & Driver Magazine with a very nice story about his automobile collecting and sharing. Those who had the pleasure of knowing him miss him very much. We hope this site brings those people and his family a comforting touch. Rest in blessed peace John.
