In a scene from the unfinished masterpiece, "Monster Planet".
Dave Henderson remembers, "John was a true film geek. He loved to write, and dreamed of writing a movie script that would be made into a film. He was the editor of a newsletter entitled "Bits and Pieces" that ran for a short time. He helped us lay the foundations of the ICS, and every July he gave a thoughtful and fascinating talk to our members, followed by a great movie. His death was so unexpected, and a great loss to us all.
"I met John in 1992 when I joined the Horror and Fantasy Film Society." Mitch remembers, "We worked together on a sci-fi spoof (see VIDEO), and loved talking about writing, particularly screenwriting. I have a lot of fond memories of hanging out with John."
Charlie Wittig, a close friend of John's says, "He was a mild mannered, gentle soul who just happened to love wrestling, Lovecraft,
writing, and all thing movies. He had a dry, cutting wry sense of humor and
he was part of the ICS's heart and soul.
