Someone posted a link to a slideshow diary John made over at pprune and it captures his spirit brilliantly.

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds - and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air.
Up, up the long delirious, burning blue,
I've topped the windswept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or even eagle flew -
And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high untresspassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand and touched the face of God.
Pilot Officer Gillespie Magee
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

I don't want it to go without saying, so I'll say it. I really appreciate the contributions made by a lot of folks here. Someone else mentioned Gomer by name so I'll add my kudos. But there are several others.
