A man who taught me a tremendous amount about life. A man who was very generous, very kind, very comical, organized, and the upmost leader.
My brother was there when anyone needed him, was there to be the life of the party, and was there to make sure everyone had a great time. He loved to throw a party, and certainly loved to be around his family and friends. He never missed a chance to tease or to play a practical joke.
Well,what can I say, you truly lived a life that was full of love, life, and happiness. You made all those around you that much more cheerful. I can say I will miss the times we spent together. I will miss the father’s day golf games, the holidays, the superbowl parties, the phone calls, and simply YOU!!
You are always in my heart and my soul. I am so glad you were there to see me get married, although regretful you won’t be here to share sooo many more things with me. “A life well-lived is a precious gift of hope and strength and grace from someone who has made our world a brighter, better place.
“A life well-lived is a legacy of joy and pride and pleasure, a loving, memory our grateful hearts will treasure.”
I love you and miss you, Your sister, Joanne
I worked with John many years ago in the Communications Department at Cantor. We became good friends and had some great times together. I think of you often now. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
Can’t believe that 6 years has gone by since that tragic day. I think of you daily and can’t believe that you are not here. It is very hard to imagine, even so many years later. Many things have happened since that day, some happy and some sad. I know you are Dad are at peace, but surely missed! My 2 children would love to have known their crazy uncle John and we talk about you often. Please take care of my precious baby Tanner-i know he is in good hands! I miss you dearly, as the entire family does. Someday we will meet again-love always and forever…..
I knew John since the late 70s in Vailsburg where we grew up. I remember him always riding his bicycle wearing shorts & sneakers without socks. Several times we spent hours on the phone talking. He had such a crush on me, he said I looked like Sondra Locke. I never dated him ’cause I was too hung up on another boy. : ( I have a photograph of us together at my graduation party. Over the years I’ve tried to search for him. I thought of him often. He always knew how to make me smile. Just last night I decided to search him again. I told a mutual friend today I was looking for him & she let me know he had died in 911. I lost my breathe. I couldn’t believe I was just finding out. I can’t believe you’re gone. You were so sweet. I missed you when I left NJ. I’m glad you found love & had a family. You always were an angel. Francine
I was so saddened to hear that John was a victim of such a horrific tragedy. I remember him as a funny guy in school and our group even hung out once we all went to our respective high schools.
I put his name on my calendar every year on Sept. 11th…I work for the Twp of Irvington, NJ and when I send out any letterheads on Sept. 11th, I always put at the bottom… “In loving memory of John Pocher” It’s the least I can do. His family and friends are in my prayers, Always.
Always had a big smile and laugh…with cheeks that would get big and round as the smile grew…back in the 80s, had the hair parted in the middle, like we all did…he was a good friend…
