John was the most loyal and dedicated man I know. Personally, John and I had just celebrated our sixteenth wedding anniversary. We were married on our college campus, Saint Michael’s College, in Winooshi, Vermont in September of 1985. John and I met the first week of my freshman year and started dating on Valentine’s Day of 1980. He was the love of my life and I his. There is no doubt in my mind that our children, Peter, 12, and Carolyn, 10, and I were the most important things in his life.
Professionally, John joined Cantor two weeks after graduating from college in 1982 and remained there for nineteen years. A rarity on Wall Street!
His loyalty and dedication was apparent in his lifelong friendships as well. Many friends made a point of telling me how true a friend John had been over the years during good times as well as bad. As quoted by Mike Anderson in his eulogy, “John was a devoted person with a strong sense of responsibility and as having held strongly to his convictions and morals when it wasn’t always easy to do so.”
John was an avid outdoorsman, a passion he shared with family and friends. He enjoyed hiking, camping, boating and most importantly skiing. He never let a day go by without rejoicing in the beauty of the world around him.
