John Chenoweth was a good friend and will be sorely missed

I am writing to express my pain over the loss of my dear friend, John Chenoweth, who died Aug. 2. I currently work for Turner Sports in Atlanta and will be unable to attend his funeral services. If you see fit to print this as a goodbye to John, it would be very much appreciated.

John and I became friends during my time in Breckenridge as we worked together at both the Village and the River Mountain Lodge.

At a troubling time in my life, John was a true friend and companion. I know that the news of his death has caused many heavy hearts in Breckenridge.

John loved snowboarding, disc golf, juggling, the Beastie Boys, James Brown and his friends.

I believe that who we become in life is directly related to the friends we choose.

I am a better person for knowing him.

There have been a number of friends in my life whom God chose to take earlier than I would have liked. I think of them when faced with a fear, challenge, or tough decision that they did not get the chance to make, and the thought of them gives me strength.

John, you are going to the top of the list. I will miss you always. Your friend,

Garrett Gerstung
