We are saddened to learn of Jon's death. He was my (Art's) best and closest friend for much of my high school years and my freshman roommate at USC. (We were both frightened and homesick country boys who were a great comfort for each other.) Jean and I went on double dates with Jon and Mary Still on several occasions during high school. Jon and I mostly lost touch over the years but did spend some quality time together on a couple of occasions during high school reunions. Rest in peace my friend.
