John was active in the LOPSA community. I saw him at nearly every LOPSA-NJ meeting, where he was active in planning and hosting the meetings. He was also on the board of LOPSA (national) where he will be greatly missed.
John was also a football coach at the school where he worked in the IT department. It was very clear that his coaching skills were something he applied everywhere, including his helpfulness and mentoring at LOPSA.
I had a feeling that when I hugged him at the end of the January LOPSA meeting it might be the last time I saw him. He was recovering from bypass surgery and was looking worn. He was chipper and friendly as always. He was a good guy. Easy to get along with. He kept LOPSA-NJ and many other projects going.
John Boris passed away last night.
I'll miss him.
