seafarer john

seafarer john has gone on that final voyage. He died on March 18th at age 85.  He succumbed to mesothelioma, a condition that can affect people who have spent time around ships.
John joined Roadfood.com in March of 2003. He was a frequent contributor and could be quite outspoken. He was also a gifted cook.
Cheers, John. We’ll miss you.
 
Bill

    Michael and I are very saddened to hear of his passing.  He and Michael used to swap memories of the Connecticut shore.

    Oh, what a shame.  He was such a nice man.  I had the pleasure of sitting next to him at a couple of restaurants during the first Mobile Glee Club.  Really smart and very interesting.  He will be much missed around here.  Condolences to his wife and family.

    I am saddened to hear of the loss of my friend John. He was a good man and a good friend. We shared several 'meetings' with our RF groups over the years and he was always a positive addition to the discussions that took place.
    God Bless and Keep you, John, Rest in Peace.

    I also met the man a couple of times.  Very nice and mild mannered.  He will be missed.

    It was his time to sail that great boat beyond. I alsways enjoyed his comments. A few times we swapped sea stories on private messages and I felt like I'd really like to site down and chat with him. That never happened, sadly. He will be missed.

    I had the pleasure of meeting and getting to knowSeafarer John on several occasions beginning with crabstock back in 2004 and most recently at the Central Connecticut tour back in the spring of 2008. 
     
    He was such a nice man and I'm truly sad to hear of his passing. I will miss him.

    Hello all ,
    God Bless his soul . John was a wonderful man who loved his fellow roadfooders like family .
    From Hot Dog Tours , to meat ups , to holiday gatherings among friends he was always a pleasure to be with .
    I also spoke with Gail via FB a little while ago and have  passed the word to those that do  not frequesnt here that often .

    I got to know John from the New Jersey Hot Dog Tour. He attended a couple and I went to a few meet ups in his area. We celebrated his 80th Birthday with a surprise party at Charlies Pool Room. Hot dogs and cake. It was great getting to know John, Brooklyn Bill and their wives. I felt honored when John skipped his 60th high school reunion to attend our Tour. He will be missed. Rest in peace my friend.

    He could have an educated knowledgeable spirited conversation about most any topic.

    He will be missed.

    That's a great picture, Michael. I enjoyed spending time with he and Gail during our first Glee Club meeting in Mobile. Rest in peace, my friend.

    A few years ago I hosted a tour of the Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia. He and Gail were part of the group of 10 or 11 Roadfooders that day. Great guy. Will miss him.

    Although I was not lucky enough to meet Seafarer John in person, by reading his posts here on Roadfood, he became a part of my "Roadfood Family", just as all of the rest of you have become also. As everyone else has already said, I will miss him and his posts very much.
     
    My condolences to all of his family, both here, and in "real life".
     
    May you find fair winds, calm seas, and safe harbor,
    Stan...

    Wow thanks for sharing, but sad to hear the sad news.  Mesolothemia is something I am concerned with as I worked for about 4 years thru college in an asbestos paper mill in Ohio.  He seemed like such a nice guy and always interesting things to say.
