No one inhabited the Simtropolis community and forums with as much dedication as John. In the quietest days he was always around, a familiar and friendly constant presence, always with something to contribute here in a place that thrives on thoughtful discussion. We're all familiar with his innumerable contributions and they will undoubtedly be remembered. He seemed to be a pretty cool guy throughout his life as well.
Rest in peace, friend. We'll keep making sure the splines get reticulated down here.
