  1. David and Sharon Baines says:
    27 Feb 2020
    My friendship with John goes back to the mid 1960's when our parents each owned summer homes at Candlewood Lake Club in
    Connecticut. John, myself, and a few other guys our age (Glen Ewing, Jay Gronlund) did a lot together as college age kids. In Sept. 1967,
    just before John entered Navy OCS at Newport, John and I made a road trip to Montreal to visit Expo '67. That was a heck of a three day trip! A few years later, in August, 1971, after John had served in the navy as a distinguished skipper of a patrol boat in the Mekong Delta of Vietnam, John was "Best Man" in my wedding. Our friendship lasted all these years even though we had nearly forty year hiatus when John and Sharon were in NC and I was in VA and CT. We reconnected just this past year as my wife, Sharon, and I twice visited John and Sharon at their Ormond Beach home and John and Sharon then visited us in August at our CT summer home on Candlewood Lake. We are so sad
    that John has passed, and our love goes out to Sharon and the Fenlon extended family for their loss.
