John has been a part of my life since I can remember. He was my dad’s best friend. They met worked at Rodefer Gleason Glass many moons ago Growing up, I remember him stopping by the house. As an adult he was there for dad, my brother and I when my mom passed away in 2015 and then has been there for my brother and I since my dad passed in August of 2019. He called me weekly since dad passed to check on me. He even called me on his break at the printing shop His voice always calmed me, he was never in a bad mood and he truly cared about people. I will never know anyone like Krebsie and I will miss him all the days of my life. So long, sweet cheeks.

Being from out of town my only source of information has been the internet in trying to find out what happened to John since first learning about it on Face Book this past Sunday. Finally the day of his viewing I see it posted. I first met Krebsie in 1976 when I worked at WOMP FM. Legend has it he showed first showed up at the station in KISS make up around Halloween. I met him one night while I was on the air. He rang the buzzer which was really loud. When I answered the door he said he heard me on the radio asking for people to give me a buzz and we’ve been friends ever since. He eventually landed a gig as being the disc jockeys roadie. “Disco down with the men from WOMP FM”. He helped us haul our equipment around and set up for record hops. I left the WOMP in 1978 for Virginia, then Connecticut and finally Pittsburgh. All the while we kept in touch mostly on the phone but occasionally getting together. One summer in ’84 we got together at Barcamp as part of a reunion of sorts. It was a place my wife and I loved to go practically every weekend. In ’87 he helped move my wife’s grandmother out of her house on the Island. In ’94 he showed up at a surprise 40th birthday party my wife threw for me. But through out the years we mostly kept in touch by phone or a direct message on Face book. The last time I talked to John was in June. He wanted to talk to me about a radio station Rocky 96.5.and how they were playing songs you just don’t hear anymore. In fact every time we talked it was mostly about music. Last time he DM’d me was 8 days ago, September 22nd. He sent me a picture of the Worlds Fastest Z50 motorcycle. Can’t believe he’s gone.

John’s been a good friend since high school. He always had the scoop on the newest band and albums. A great drummer friend also I’ll miss dearly. See you later buddy and rest in peace.
