John Powers Death
January 19, 2013 | 08:59 AM

John Powers grew up friends with my father at Brother Rice high school. His father was close to my grandfather, and they often got together to socialize in the greater Chicago area. I've had the privilege of being around John at various times during my childhood and adult years. When I was with him he was always full of energy and life. I remember the last time I was with him sitting back and marveling at his ability to tell humorous stories off the top of his head in rapid fire succession. As an aspiring writer, John was humble and helpful in giving me some advice on the writing industry. The last time I saw him he took time to speak to me alone with my about publishing and made himself available to me if I ever had questions. John will be missed. My prayers and sympathy to JaNelle, Jacy, and Joy.
