Requiesat. He had a wealth of knowledge.

I didn't know John, but he was very generous with his knowledge on the old forum.

Sad news indeed. He passed on the 5th on January. John was a wealth of knowledge on all things Williams. I spoke with him in December a few weeks before Christmas. It was always a pleasure talking shop with him and picking his brain with Williams related questions. Just a great guy and friend that I will dearly miss.
Professional bum.

So sad about John. I have known him for awhile and I considered him a good friend. He had a voluminous knowledge of Williams trombones and he got me one of the first horns that John Duda made.

I miss John. He knew a lot about a lot of different things and I could talk with him for hours.

I visited him in November in Apple Valley. He was looking bad and I had a feeling that his heart was going to give out. Before I left, he asked me to take a prototype Williams 4 with me to evaluate. This is a horn that Matt Simianer has built for BAC Instruments. I have the horn now, including an additional lightweight brass slide. The horn plays great. I was asked by John to record some vids and then send the horn to the next person in the queue.

Here is a thing I recorded at the beginning of the pandemic... me practicing "Body and Soul" with large intervallic jumps. I was hoping to do something with the prototype Williams 4 and post it but time is not my friend right now. RIP John.
