John Blaha
I was one of the lucky individuals to be able to participate in John and Phil's fishing trip of a lifetime. John and Phil visited Rockport, Texas on their way to Lake Falcon and the short time that I and a co-worker spent with John and Phil will forever be remembered and has made a lasting impression on my life.

Wow i've known john since we played little league together. Never got to know him as well later in middle and high school. Always knew him as a good guy though, seemed to always have a smile on his face. He'll be dearly missed by everyone, worlds not as bright a place without him.

I was lucky to know John these last four years. Our relationship was borne of the whirwind of his disease, my memories of him are of his deep love of nature, his wisdom in appreciating what is valuable in life and his generous good spirit. His journey was shorter than most but his reach was far. Thank you John.

It was a pleasure meeting John. I'm sure he was an inspiration to all that met him, his spirit and strength are always something that I will strive towards as a person, and something that will always inspire me. He always had a smile on his face, and if he were in pain you would have never known it. It was a pleasure having him here at the hotel with his fiance, Uncle Tom, and Aunt Linda. We had many great chats over chocolate chip cookies and great vies of Coronado. I remember he loved Reggae music and I really wished he were at the Ziggy Marley concert I was at last week. He sure would have enjoyed it. You sure will be missed John, and your memory will live on in all of us.

John was such a remarkable blending of his parents. He had Mary's tenacity and John's quirkiness. But he also seemed to have all of their good features. And those he put to good use. He loved his parents and Virginia but craved his independence. Just as his parents carved out their perfect home, he and Cynthia probably would have done the same thing probably in Utah. LJ did not live a conventional life and he was all the better for it. I knew him as a boy and even babysat him occasionally. I saw him every Christmas for years. I loved him and I will always miss him. My love and sympathy to Cynthia, John and Mary.

I never met John, but Aunt Linda an Uncle Tom have told me so much about him. When I found out he died, I felt so bad. I Give my sympathy to all who knew him. I hope he is happy now that all his suffering is over. I hope he is now in happier place and that he is looking down at all of us today.

I did not really know john all that well, but i felt like i did from all the nice things i heard about him from linda and tom. i have linda and tom's wedding piture with my sons and john in the wedding party. they were all just young boys then and no one would ever have believed that this would have happened to john. i just want to express my sincere condolences to all of john's family and especially tom who had a very special relationship with him. i genuinely feel that with all of his suffering, john is truly in a better place.
Uncle Roger and Aunt Jean
When I think about my nephew, I inevitably recall his enviable passion for life. His quest for a career in ski racing, his love of fishing, and the richness of his friendships; in these, he accomplished more of what is fundamentally important in life than many of us do in a longer lifetime. His friends, particularly Philip Kreutzer, his true love, the very special and remarkable Cynthia, and his passion for ski racing that he so loved so much and excelled in - and, in all these things, the love and devotion of his parents, John and Mary

I don't really know what to say. I went to elementary school and middle school with a good friend john rust. we played baseball together as well. i still think of him as nails like josh (G-Man) said in his input. we lost touch when i left school as i did with most old friends. I am deeply saddened by what happened and even more sad that i didnt know john as a man like i knew him as a boy. although he always seemed rather grown up. i will miss him and the memories i did have. my favorites being the summers he'd come up to the dock on his boat and just say hey. Ill miss you Nails.

It is difficult to put into words the sorrow I feel for all of you. I new Little John as a young boy and after looking at all of the pictures, reading John's essay and all of the wonderful things said about him I feel that I truly missed knowing a very special person. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I must say that the photographs truly showed a very special person with a wonderful family, friends, and a beautiful women Cynthia.

I didn't know Little John very well personally, but from all the stories that my Aunt Linda and Uncle Tom have told me over the years, I feel like I've known him forever. I was so sad to hear the bad news and I wish to send my condolences to his whole family. He was such a special person, people like him don't come around very often. I'm just glad I had the honor of meeting him.

My thoughts and prayers go out to you, your family, and your wife Cynthia. I am so greatful I had the chance meet and get to know you during my senior year at Brooke point HS. Without you there pushing me with your competative spirit. I would have never improved enough to be the tennis player I am today.

You will never be forgotten John Rust. Thank You.

John,

The comfort in knowing that we can always rely on each-other was born through the lifetime of memories that we share as brothers. Words cannot possibly capture this sentiment. They do not have the strength to bear the weight of our friendship. What is left unsaid are all of the important things that we already know and your trademark smile which reminds me to be upbeat on a down day. I can't tell you how proud I am of the man you grew up to be; a man so strong and courageous yet so gentle and humble. I want to raise my children to be like their Uncle John, who I will tell them is a better fisherman than I.
