    I am sad to hear about John, and he will be deeply missed. I only heard about this a few days ago from a mutual friend and I would like to share some memories of him here.

    I met John in 1994 when I was in my first job after university with Oil tools Triconex. My boss Ray told me that there will be a guy from Irvine helping us to set up the procedures for systems proposals.

    I can not remember Ray”°Ã¢”šÂ¬Ã¢”žÂ¢s exact words, but I am sure that these were used, smart, interesting, long hair and torn jeans. When I got to know him better, I think that the more suitable words should have been, very smart, very interesting”°Ã¢”šÂ¬? well, he cut his hair and I guess he found a nicer pair of jeans in Orchard road.

    We were both stuck in a room with the filing cabinets and catalogs, some times working till late in the evening rushing out proposals for the sales folks. I guess looking back it was tough, but some how, John made it fun and enjoyable.

    He was never reserved about his opinions, and he thought me to be vocal, which was tough for me. And I can say that that was one of the best tips in my life.

    Even though we did not keep in touch much after I left the company, he left a strong impression with me and he will always live in my memories.

    I am so sad to hear of John’s passing. He was a high school friend of mine – so very bright and unique. John was one of those rare people who you might not see for 20 years but you remember them with a smile like it was yesterday. My deepest condolences to his family and friends. I am truly sorry for your loss.

    I just learned of John’s passing – very, very sad to say the least. I was a friend of John’s in grade school and have great memories of a very kind, interesting and funny kid. His nickname was “Koko” back then : My condolences go out to all his family and friends.

    Great guy!
