John Douglas Passes Away

May 15th, 2015 · No Comments · Grand Rapids Press, John Douglas Passes Away, John Serba, Tribute to John Douglas

It is with a very heavy heart that we report the passing last night of legendary movie critic, musician, and raconteur John A. Douglas. Here is the story from the WZZM TV13 web site. Here is a wonderful tribute from Grand Rapids Press columnist John Serba.

John was a unique man, with so many stories to share that he always had me (webmaster, Bill) in stitches. He was often referred to as a curmudgeon. And he may have been, on the surface. Underneath, he had a heart of gold.

This website went dormant years ago because John’s interest in movies waned as his love for music waxed. We often talked about creating a new web site that featured his music career as well as his countless stories. But John preferred to live life rather than write about it. So that site never happened.

Thank you for many years of friendship (and lots of laughs), John. You will be missed.

- Bill Murphy
