His nickname was, willistuder.
An email I received this morning....
"Hi Barb, this is Frodo. I'm just writing to let you know that John died yesterday at about 3:30 PM EST.
He was in a lot of pain this last month, and we are all so glad that he is free from it now.
Hope you're doing well, best regards.
John had an aneurism in February... then there were complications. John is now in the arms of his Savior.
