Yes I remember that to when he rocked back and forth in his chair at school and always talked to you no matter who you was the cool person or not. He always seemed to put smiles on peoples faces. He will be forever missed by so many so people dont get on here and make stupid and wrong comments just to hurt everyone worse. Even tho of an overdose doesnt always mean drugs you was a drug addict. Sometimes people take to much of there medications and not relizing it or often take some meds. that just didnt go together.
I am not for sure who he married or how many kids he had. But I am sending prayers and thoughts to all his friends, family,wife and kids. And may god have mercy of the ones putting him down on here with the neg. comments. RIP JOHN HURLEY

I attended john's wake this afternoon. It was so sad to watch the loved ones morn from the loss of a good person. To watch his mother and children cry really tore my heart out. I wish there was something I could do to stop the pain. I guess it will take time to heal the pain of the family members. I never got to really know john, but from what I hear he was a good guy.

To the Family and Friends of John....My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I am so sorry.

John was a wonderful person he loved to make everyone laugh he loved to listen to all different kinds of music he loved his family and friends. he always had a smile on his face. he loved to make u watch every movie that he liked. when he was little we would wrestle for hours and we would go exploring in the hills and down by the river he loved that too. my life will never be the same after this i will always love him so much and i will always hold in my heart all the memories that we made as he was growing up. i know in my heart the he is in heaven with the lord and his paw mayo. rest in peace John Michael Hurley u will always be loved and missed

May God be with John's family during this time. My thoughts and prayers are with each and every one of you all.

I have known John for 14 years. He was a great man. He knew what how to be a "true friend." Anytime that I was down and having a bad day John always had a way of cheering me up and making me laugh. He knew how to have a good time and he was such a people person. John was young, but he knew a lot about life. He was so wise beyond his years. He had a big heart and would give the shirt off his back to help someone. Life hasn't always been easy for John, he went through trials and bad times the same as everyone, but you couldn't ever keep him down. He had such an optimistic attitude and it seemed like he could always find the good in everything and everyone. John knew me better than anyone. He was easy to talk to, and was always available to talk whenever someone needed him.

It feels unreal that John is actually gone forever. Whenever I heard that John had passed away, it didn't seem real. I assumed that someone had gotten the names mixed up so I called his mom. Even after talking to her and hearing it from her, it still didn't seem real. Whenever I went to the wake and seen John laying there reality really sunk it. I will never be able to talk to my best friend again. I will never get to hear his laugh which was always so full of life. I won't get to hear the way he would always burst out in song. I won't ever get to see the way he would constantly rock back and forth when we were sitting around. You were my best friend John. You will live on through the hearts of many who loved you.

John, I love you so much. You will forever be in my heart, and I will always miss you. I have many memories of you that I will always treasure and remember. You're in a better place now. God bless John and all of his family. My email is if anyone ever needs to talk.

I also seen on the posts that someone was wanting a picture of John posted on here. I will post his myspace url and you can go there and see his picture.

I have known John for many many years!! He was definitely one of a kind and there was never a dull moment and there never was any kind of anger that could stand to the kindness and laughter that he brought into one's presence!! I still just can't believe that he's gone. It just doesn't add up and its just oh so hard to swallow!!! The pain just sticks all clumped up in my throat from the hurt this has brought forth and not just to a few people's life but a whole world full of people!! After seeing him lying there it was just sooo agonizing, I just wanted to be able to bring him back so bad and just scream that it isn't true for I hurt not only for me but for my sister and his family then all the other friends who have truly lost one of the truest most humble friend that they could have possibly been Blessed to have known, John Michael Hurley!!! May God Rest Your Soul With Him!!! I will ALWAYS Miss and Love You John!! Your Friend For All Eternity!!

John was a wonderful careing person that was crazy about his mother he was always talking about her. And he loved his children very much. His son also rocks back and forth like his daddy. I have never been to such a sad funeral, Carolyn my heart acked for you and you have been in my prayers every since Trust in GOD and he will be there for you when no one else is.
