Johnny hired me to work in his music store as I was just going in to high school. Worked there all four years with JR Hudson and John's sister Treva and nephew Jon Cullen Stahl. John was a tremendous musician and even a better person. Can't even begin to put into words how much JohnnyO's helped shape me as a person. He let me buy my first wonderful set of Slingerland drums when I was a sophomore that cost over $1000 dollars in 1959. Who would do that? Will always be grateful to JO.

I did not know John, but I know his son Chip. And if the adage like father like son is true, then John must have been a hell of a guy!!

Ellen Sorry to hear of the loss of you husband, John. Your love for him was always present and displayed with the twinkle in you eyes. I am sorry I didn't know him well and only wish had been able to enjoy his music. Love to you, my friend. Stay strong and call on me whenever you want.

Dear Mrs. Otte, My heart is with you. If you need anything please let me know. I will always remember when you would ask me if you could take a little something for Mr. Otte after an LGA event, munchies. You always showed so much love for Mr. Otte. Please let me know if I can help with anything. Hugs....Marsha
