January 15, 1950 - July 30, 2009
John passed away Thursday morning of heart failure after a courageous and determined yearlong battle with cancer.
In recent weeks, John had been feeling well enough to schedule himself for a solo show, in addition to scheduling a gig
with the Loose Gravel Blues Band, both for the month of August. John's sudden and unexpected passing has shocked and
saddened our Blues Community.
