I have just heard that my longtime friend John Mendoza has died after a long period of ill health. He was Magic Café's own Runawayjag,

There is little to say other than the past four or five months were particularly rough on him and his family. He'll always be remembered for his brilliant Cups and Balls routine (a first done with the then new Combo cups put out by Morrissey Magic in Canada). I will always remember the help, advice, tips, and wisdom he shared with me.

Rest In Peace my friend. You will be missed.

Sad to hear. The last email he sent out didn't seem like he was very well and he was aware he didn't have long.

I am so sorry to hear this news. I long admired and trusted John as a most respected dealer of antiquarian magic. He was always willing to answer complicated questions about old props and provide performance tips and hints. His special and unique presentational subtleties were always appreciated. One of a kind for sure.

I did some magic business with him last summer. He was very gracious and helpful with a question I had pertaining to a sophisticated piece of magic. It was a pleasure knowing him even if it was only online. R.I.P. good sir.

I remember one of his last emails. He mentioned how he had to have his beloved cat euthanized and how much she had meant to him. And now he is gone, too. It's so sad. RIP, John.

That's so sad. He was one of my heroes. I hope he went peacefully.

I knew John through some trheads and PMs. He was kind and helpful to me. The quality of his magic leaves no doubts. Another star has reached the Greats of the past. R.I.P. John. Condolences to the family.
