John was my first cousin. I didn't get to know him well because of the age and distance from the Chicago area. I had heard so much about him I stopped in Fort Wayne on a trip from my home in Georgia to meet him. I am very glad I did. John was a sports legend in our Chicago neighborhood.

To the entire family of John Gaughan,
Our heart felt sympathy. John was an inspiration, a great man, an example to our 5 children to play by the rules. God and heaven are so blessed to have him in heaven. Remembering the good times

Coach Gaughan was a model of what it meant to be a Catholic man during my four years at Luers and for many years afterward. One can only hope to have as positive an impact on others as he did. Please accept my heartfelt condolences and prayers.

I remember many happy times in the house at the end of Kenilworth. It was a beehive of smiling, terrific people.

Michael and family,
Please know that y'all are in our prayers.
Always had fun flaunting my 'Italianess' with your Dad, especially on St Patrick's Day.
He was a great role model that is sorely lacking in the education community today.
Take pride and comfort in knowing how many lives he touched in a positive way.
And please extend our special condolences to your mom.

Hoping to see you this fall.
Bob Sabatini and family.
