From Dover, New Jersey
15 August 1948 - 10 March 1969
Your high school classmates have never forgotten you, John, or the qualities that made you so memorable. You are our model for optimism, determination, and character.
It took us nearly 40 years, but we have finally created a memorial worthy of you. Starting with the Class of 2008, we'll award a significant scholarship to a senior who demonstrates the qualities you embodied. You would be dazzled by the generosity of friends on your behalf. We hope this award, and your name, will last in perpetuity, long after the rest of us are forgotten.
We'll always remember your promise and your sacrifice, John. We miss you.
