John was an elementary classmate as well as a Redford Alum.  He was very quiet, and liked to stay away from the group.

He was a very good athlete, and played on Redford's varsity baseball team.  Too bad he never came around, or tried to 

connect with people.  After graduation, I never saw John again.
