John C is one of my wife’s younger brothers. My wife Monica had two younger brothers, John and Rick.  She had two older brothers, Mark and Joe (Joe passed away).  John C has four sisters, my wife Monica and Donna who have both passed and Mary and Missy.  John is married to a wonderful lady, Terry.  I could tell you more about Terry but I just want you all to know that she is a sweet and special person.  John and Terry have one son, Michael.

The first time I met John, he was called Johnny, and he was playing with his younger brother Ricky.  He was a happy child with a brilliant mind.  He had a love of music and wanted to live both making and enjoying music.  He became the leading entertainer in the Bay Area.  He entertained by playing his electric piano and singing popular songs as well as his own songs.  He interacted with the audience and they enjoyed both him and his music.

John bought an 80 acre farm in North California where he grows grapes, makes wine, raises pigs and chickens.  He also raised his son in this smog free, insecticide free, chemical free environment. He has continued with his music and is planning to produce a tape by this summer’s end.  John informed me that he is very busy putting together a compilation CD of some of his home recordings of his original songs. He said that he would send me a copy when he gets it completed.  I am looking forward to this music.

Here is a photo of John, Michael and Terry.
