Is he the gentleman that jumped in the bright orange jumpsuit? He was traveling around jumping all the different aircraft types he could?

John was so much more than a skydiver. A very dear long time friend, a wonderful father and always there when needed. We will miss that big smile from the guy with a big gentle heart.
