I knew John for a few years... he was the sweetest, nicest man you could ever know. He always had a smile and kind thing to say. I was so deeply saddened by his tragic death and all the thousands of other losses on that black day. I hope one day I could travel to NY to visit the beautiful Memorial to "see" him one more time, if not though, John, in my business you are very missed and your professionalism has never been duplicated. Never forgotten!

My husband, Jim Rico and John played golf at Skylinks as often as possible. They were good pals. John will never be forgotten and Jim passed in 2008. I am sure they are playing golf in heaven!

I knew John Hofer as Mr. Hofer. He was a client at the bank I worked at. I remember the last time I saw him, he came to do his usual banking and told me he would be going to Boston. The last thing I said to Mr. Hofer was "Have a safe trip, we'll see you when you get back." I took for granted how fragile life is, even for a nice guy. My thoughts and prayers still go out to his family.

I was just thinking of Johnny on this sad anniversary. He was the only person I knew personally that died that day. I remember he was a handsome guy with a nice smile and he has a very nice family. I was in Boston on 9-11 and I was scheduled to fly home to LA at 4:30 on American Airlines. Johnny was on Flight 11 - the morning flight. Needless to say, my flight never happened. I came close. I hope John never sensed the end.

I knew John for several years before 9/11 and always thought he was a very nice man who could be very funny. He usually wore a smile when coming into our shop, and I always looked forward to seeing him. He always loved to talk, especially about his beloved golf. He is still missed to this day and will continue to be.

Post your memorial thoughts:

Share your feelings and memories of grief and sadness concerning the 9-11-2001 attack, or of positive memories.  If you knew this person, help us to build a small 'bio' of the person and share with us something about his/her life:

  • what kind of person he/she was, 
  • what nice points you remember about him/her, 
  • what kind of relationship you had with him/her, 
  • what you two perhaps did together, 
  • what he/she meant to you, 
  • or other things about him/her might be especially encouraging for other people.

This web site is intended solely as a means of allowing all of us to express our grief and sympathy in behalf of the people who lost their lives, and also our love and compassion towards those who lost loved ones and friends in the 9/11/01 tragedy. The site is strictly for memorial mentions of those who passed away in the tragedy, not of other people who have passed away.

Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site. It is not our intent to venture into the realms of WHO should face judgement, to take responsibility for those terrible events, because we have no way of knowing for sure who all might fall into that category. Therefore, any letters or notes written passing judgment upon any person or group will not be published on this site. We do NOT want this site to be a base for expressions of hatred, but only for expressions of LOVE!

9-11Heroes.us is a personal effort, not a business, nor is the site dedicated to any specific person or persons. We will not post negative comments. Moreover, 9-11Heroes.us reserves the right to choose which comments to post and also to edit the comments for spelling, punctuation, grammar, or edit comments that are unkind or offensive in some manner. We are maintaining this site with our own money and time. We try to keep the advertisements to a minimum and we try to make them as unobtrusive as possible. The revenue goes back to maintaining this site.

Thank you for your understanding in these matters.
