Condolence: I want to send my most sincere condolences to John's family. I have so many fond memories of John starting with the day I first met him in December 0f 1977. I remember this day so well because I had just had my baby, Jake Goodwin, and I was sitting on the couch nursing Jake in my little rental house on Cherry Street behind Jim Rathman Chevrolet. I had a bad a** mutt named Spot who lived outside and had a bark of a German Shepard and the body of a daschund. This big man came up to my screened door and knocked. Spot must have been around the corner of the house so when he heard the knock he tore across the yard barking and running towards this big guy. Before I could say anything this man started yelling and cursing in this booming voice and opened the screen door and barged right into my house! He boomed out the words "your dog is trying to kill me!!!!! He proceeded to come sit next to me, baby nursing and all, and started talking to me like he had known me all my life. I was so shocked I didn't know what to say. He just kept talking like there was nothing unusual about this situation except that my dog had scared the curse word out of him! He began to try and sell me life insurance.
I tried discreetly to take my baby off my boob while this man just kept laughing and talking like he was my best friend. I told him I needed to change Jake's diaper. He followed me into the nursery and kept talking while I proceeded to change the diaper. He never skipped a beat and he just made me laugh. John Walden and I were friends from that day forward.
I just can not imagine this world without John Walden. He was bigger than life. He defined the words fun,jovial,interesting,loving,energetic,and giving. The last time I saw John was at Jackson Vaughn's 101st birthday. I only wish I had spent more time with him that day. John will be missed by so many. I am so saddened by this loss.

Condolence: Dear John,
My life changed the day I walked into your office in downtown Melbourne. That was 30 years ago. So many of the good things that have happened in my life can be traced back to you. Thank you for sharing a bit of your amazing life with me and my family. You are loved.

Condolence: John REALLY did make the world's best crab cakes! He said he did, and proved it time and time again. Mr. Personality worked to have it all, and ALWAYS did it His Way. His way was normally not the most conventional, but it certainly worked and endeared him to everyone he met. We will miss him greatly. Whisper us some secrets, when you can! Ciao.

Condolence: Our love, prayers and blessings for the family and everyone grieving John's loss. His zest for life was like no other! He told us personally in his last days that he would be an Angel over all of us! We believe him, are grateful for him and will live every day to the fullest in his honor. John did things HIS way - his passing on a Saturday is true symbolism of his life's motto "Every day's a Saturday"

Our love for always,
Chris and Kris Romandetti
