John Charlton

John, a Sagittarius, was a school teacher in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida teaching district. He specialized in geography and history. He was great in motivating and helping children embrace their scholastic selves. He loved to travel throughout the world and always had a kid like curiosity about everything. Loved history and old civilizations. Extremely bright, read over four books a week. Had a quick wit, and a great sense of humor. He made friends quickly. He lost many friends in the AIDS epidemic and would often say: “all my friends are dead, I no longer want to be here.” It was several years after hearing this comment, that he himself passed from AIDS. It seems he became HIV positive through tainted blood which had not been screened.
