Marlene so sorry to hear about the passing of John. We so remember John back in the Club 7 days in Powhatan Point. He played in the band off/on with Jim Sisson (my husband), Sonny Barnes, John Lipinski. And what fun we had. John would always go down to New Martinsville before the gig and get PJ’s Pizza. Have not seen John for years so sorry for your loss. Sandy & Jim Sisson
