John was one of the greats, I had the honor of standing next to him behind the omelet table at oglebay for many years. He had the ability to make any guest feel at home and truly understood hospitality. He even had guest believing I was retired from the wwf! Marlene and the family my deepest sympathies. He was one of a kind.
