    I’ve known John and his father Johnny since as far back as I can remember. Every time I visit Fayetteville, I make a point to stop in for a cut and a chat. John was always lively with his banter and kept the tradition of chatting in a barbershop going strong. Getting a cut in Fayetteville won’t be the same anymore.

    My heart goes out to John’s family. In the more than thirty years I knew him, we talked about countless interesting subjects. On some (such as music) we had very similar opinions. On others, we knew we were likely to disagree but enjoyed a friendly argument. John was talented and always thoughtful. I looked forward to our visits. It’s hard to realize that he’s gone. My thoughts and prayers are with Johnny and the rest of the family.

    I am shocked to have learned of John’s passing. As I always have, I put off coming in for a haircut as long as possible. John always gave me a “hard time” about waiting so long to come in. I’ll miss that. So sorry for the loss of such a kind and entertaining man.
