Mr. Gaughan was my principal. He was a genuine man of deep faith. He instilled in his students the importance of love of God and standing up for the faith no matter the cost. I am thankful for the positive influence he had in my life. Thank you all for sharing him with all of us.

May God bless you John Gaughan. As a young man, you were my idol. As my coach, you had a powerful influence on my life. In fact, it was because of you that I chose to teach and coach. I wanted to be just like you. In truth, I never came close. May you forever rest in peace. Jim Still

Dear Mrs. Gaughan and family,
Words cannot describe how humble I am to have been allowed to know and work along side of John. He was such an influence on my faith life. John was an amazing man who will be missed by all who had the honor of knowing him.
May our Lord and Blessed Mother comfort you,
Office of Catechesis

Coach Gaughan was an inspiration to me since high school. One of the most respected person I have ever known. He will be missed by all. I am blessed that he was a part of my upbringing. One of life's real hero's.

I remember a lot of happiness in the house at the end of Kenilworth. I don't know how you all fit in there...

Coach Gaughan did not just coach, he instilled values. God bless and keep him.
