Great Man. His wife, Joy Lee Davis, was my English professor at St Thomas. Both gifted educators.

A wonderfully positive, open minded man. An example of the best kind of educator - he continued to learn and help others throughout his life.

I met John back in the 1990s whenhe received the WCCO Good Neighbor of the Year Award. What an incredibly kind, wise and giving man. He even extended a sincere invitation to fish on a stream near his home. I wish I would have taken him up on the offer if only to soak in the peaceful good vibes.
