John was the first immigrant that I knew. Came to Bothell Jr. High during our 7th grade and soon made friends with all of us. He was very smart and talented. His lyric tenor voice was soon admired by our choir teacher, Mr. Carter and he sang a solo at Christmas time (it might have been Ave Maria if my memory is right). In high school (as you can see in your album)he joined many different clubs and groups, a testament to his friendship and dedication at BHS. I remember one time in Mr. Peterson's math class, he challenged the teacher to a speed adding contest. So we put up two identical 3 and 4 digit columns of numbers and ya' know, Johnny consistently tied Peterson in the task. It was a riot!
I miss him greatly.
