John and I were undergrads at MIT together, and have been together in the Tulane Math Dept these many (44) years. I miss him a lot. We're writing an obit for the Times-Picayune. If anyone has any suggestions of material to include let me know. - Steve Rosencrans

John was my stepbrother and he was the absolute center of his father's adoration. A father could not love his son any more than Serge love Janis (the Latvian John). I was at a farther orbit. I will miss John and his cryptic smile. The only good thing about his untimely death is that he will be joining his father who has been waiting a long time for this reunion and they will have so much to talk about. And smile. And smile.

It is in disbelief and utter sadness and guilt that I've read of John Dauns' passing. He was my professor at Tulane 1980-83 a great mathematician and a great human. My mother who met him shortly when I was a student was very fond of him. My mother passed away almost three years ago. I now lost a great friend and I feel terrible for not corresponding with him for several months now due to my own preoccupations. Thank you for bringing forth some of John's many wonderful qualities.


My heart breaks for your loss, but I'm so glad that you found each other. Holding you close.


Oh VS-F. I've tears running down my face. He was such a lovely person. You were blessed to have known him. And he was equally blessed with you. I'm so very sorry.


Bawling and wishing I could hug you. Lo0ve, love, nothing but love.


Thank you for sharing John with us. My prayers are with you.

What a blessed story, and what a life. It seems like the two of you had some grand times together.

Thank you so much for sharing these memories.

Love to you in this time - Thorn


This is the first time I've posted a comment here (I think). I've lurked on and off for a while.

I just wanted to say how very sorry I am that your friend has died. Your words here are so beautiful and well written that I feel like I knew John too, and I must admit that I cried just a little as I read about everything he'd been through.
