WRFR  wishes to extend our sympathy and condolences to John's family. We are aware that John passed away on May 5th unexpectedly. We are sorry to hear this news. John used to phone in to the radio station to "thank,"  us and offer his appreciation for our presence on the airwaves. It was a pleasure to hear from him and hear about how much he valued local radio.  John loved music.

To John’s family…..our prayers are with you.
