aka Jack Armstrong
saddening news... I hoped I never had to write...
Our extremely amazing Dad and your friend Jack Armstrong
aka John C. Larsh passed away yesterday March 22,
2008 at his home in North Carolina. I wish there was
a better way to get the word out but this seems to
be the fastest means of communication that he favored.
If you knew him at all, you would know that he wouldn't
want you to be sad for a moment. He would want you
to remember all the good times, what he gave to radio
and to the world. He would also want you to help fight
to bring back the personality in radio if at all possible.
He loved being a DJ almost as much as he loved being
a father and that says A LOT. He put his blood, sweat
and tears into both and never gave up what he believed
in. He was honest, brave and could tell a joke like
no other!! He was the best at everything he did and
I know that he touched each and every one of us. I
dont know how he would sign off this letter, maybe
it would be "Yoooooouuuuurrr LLLlleeeadaaa!" or just
straight up "Jack it up" either which way he would
have done it better than anyone. Please remember him
in all that you do, pass on kindness, be true to yourself
and to those you love. If you have any questions,
Larsh Fischer (.Jack's middle daughter who loves him
greatly - he was an exceptional person)"
note: This is truly sad news. Jack had been living
for several years in High Point, NC.
