Madeline, I am with East Beach neighbors and just wanted to pass along our deepest and most sincere condolences with the hope and belief that John is already "fishing" with the Lord and his fishermen on the heavenly beaches with no more pain or suffering...If there is ever anything we as neighbors can do, please feel to reach out. We were honored many times with your husbands generosity and are happy to return his grace.

My Uncle John lived so big! I have admired him and loved him from my earliest memories. He stood up for me, made me laugh, and helped me see through his own example that I could make much more out of life than the box others wanted to put me in. He was a wonderful mixture of compassion and bull-headedness. I will miss Uncle John deeply, and am grateful for the sense of him that lives on through his family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

The COVA Brewing Company family was saddened to hear about the passing of John. He was a big part of the Ocean View community and was instrumental in the initial establishment of COVA Brewing by working with us to acquire the property in Ocean View. John showed us much grace and favor throughout the financing and real estate closing process. We are grateful to have known and worked with John. He will be missed. We send our heartfelt condolences.

Uncle John, the night before you passed I had a list of things I wanted to thank you for, so I guess here is as good as any - as I thought I'd have more time to share with you.. 1.) Thank you for putting up the railing for my dad on the stairwell, when he first came home from the hospital as he was trying to move about the house... 2.) Thank you for visiting after Evelynn was born and helping me get Home Depot to take back the refrigerator we bought that really was too big and didn't fit in our kitchen, you knew how to speak to the manager, it was so helpful, and I felt like I had a strong team member :-) 3.) Thanks for the pasta lunch back in the city of Rome years ago, even IF you were hastily moving through the amazing Sistine Chapel and had the museum security on edge, we called them 'professional shushers' they kept shushing you to be more quiet. Hahah, it was one of my most memorable moments in Rome. It always makes me laugh. 4.) Thank you for the memorable times on your sail boat, there was always something to do, and I'll never forget getting sea sick after going crabbing. 5.) Thanks for being there and always making the trip to Pittsburgh, these many times over the years. It was a joy to be able to come down to Virginia Beach in my summers as a pre-teen to teenager and hang out eating ice cream and watching gulf with you on the couch :-) Your strong presence will be missed, Love your niece Luci
