"Johnny" Vestal sat behind me in my freshman math class at Yadkinville High School in 1961-62 (he was a senior). I was honored to be considered a friend of an admired upperclassman and we enjoyed our time in class together each day. We went our separate ways and lost touch with each other, but I have thought about him often through the years. Apparently he had a wonderful life and a wonderful family. My thoughts and prayers for comfort and peace go out to each of you as you remember and celebrate a life well lived.

John's warmth, wit, care and compassion were in daily evidence during my graduate days at Binghamton, and continued on after I had left the department, the Mill, and a life in the theater behind. I know words are small comfort in the face of such loss. I hope your memories and knowledge that John had such impact on the lives of so many provides some refuge during this time.

Pat and family, John and I are so sorry to hear of John’s passing. He was a true southern gentleman and his warmth was always felt by us. We will always have fond memories of John. Unfortunately, we are out of town and will not be there today but please know you are in our thoughts and prayers. Our love, John and Donna
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

It can't be said of many people that knowing them changed your life, but John, as my lighting professor, certainly changed mine. He was a most charismatic, inspirational and compassionate person. I was his Assistant Lighting Designer on "Galileo Galilei" at Tri-Cities Opera (1979), and John used to joke that when I got "famous" I would take the credit off my resume. I never did. My very deepest condolences to his family.
