John's nickname was Sonny. And that's what we all called him. I was seven years younger than him, and he was my idol , .joined the marines at age 15 ! ,CAN YOU IMAGINE GOING TO CAMP LEJUNE AT THAT AGE! (then the chaplain found out his age, and sent him with an honorable discharge. What does he do ?when he reached 17 he joined the Navy, and served aboard the USS Norfolk ,as a gunners mate 1 ST CLASS. not knowing he was learning everything he needed for his position with IBM.He loved to fish and crab when he came to visit in new jersey. Bye sonny I'll miss you bro!!!!
