What additional biographical information might folks here have to share about John? I believe he had once mentioned having been a shoe salesman. Beyond his affinity for the sorts of vintage stuff we here tend to favor, I can't say that I ever knew much about the good gent's day-in, day-out life -- what he did for fun, what he did for his daily bread, et cetera. I know he was active in his church, and that he lost his little dachshund not so long ago. His online personality left we thinking that he'd be the sort of person you'd want for a next-door neighbor. You know, a straight-up kinda guy.
