    He was a great friend and mentor when I really need one in my life during a hard time.

  • Andrew Smith Posted August 21, 2018 8:56 PM

    Still stunned by the news…I had the honor of being John’s First Sergeant at the 53rd Airlift Squadron at Little Rock 2004-2006. I cherished out chats, and would love to get your debriefs on what happened when you had the First Phone when I was on leave and you covered for me. Infectious laugh, heart of gold, and a vibrant personality that would light up the room. RIP Tater. 1st Sgt
