I just received this email from a friend of mine who knew John. I had been net friends with John for many years. We lived close to each other, although I never had the chance to meet John in person. He was a great supporter of my street photography and always talked about meeting me and buying me a cup of coffee. I cannot begin to tell you of the absolute sadness and emptiness I am feeling right now.
John, was a righteous dude. The best of the best. A true Texas gentleman and a legend in our rugged, but gentle land.
I will miss you, my friend.
Here is a copy of the email I received with the details about John's passing.
"John Stovall was found dead earlier today (people don't know when over the last couple days that he passed), I don't know cause of death-funeral is Monday Morning in a small town outside of Dublin.
Graveside service will be held at 10am on Monday, 21 June at the Burkett Cemetary in Coleman. Harrell's Funeral home in Dublin is handling the arrangements.
Thought that you would want to know."
