    John was not born in 1952. He attended high school in Queens, NY and graduated in 1979 or 1980. He was known to many as Wally. He had a kind heart, and interest in muscle cars of the late 60’s and 70’s. He may build over 10 muscle car engines in Astoria NY. I know he build one with me. He was a great friend. Unfortunately, I lost touch with him in the early 90’s. I knew John and hung out with him daily for over 14 years. Recently, friends of his Queens were made aware of his passing. We all got together to celebrate his life. God bless
