Condolence Messages

  1. Please accept my heartfelt condolences. It was my pleasure to know Quinn when he was a student at WNHS and enjoy all his performances there. I will always remember him as The Leading Player in “Pippin.” His performances were full of life and the joy that showed how much he loved performing. He was quite an artist! My son Michael was a student and performer with him. Quinn will be remembered and held with warm regard in the hearts of countless people. Your family is in my prayers.

    I was stunned to hear of Quinn’s passing. During my 30 years as choir director at Westerville North, Quinn was truly in my top ten … extraordinarily talented, motivated, energetic, creative, and genuine! He was always extremely respectful, was never too “cool” to help other students, and had a terrific sense of humor. And when he performed … WOW … he had that rare ability to transfer his heart and soul to the audience! (I cannot hear the song “Mack the Knife” without visualizing his smile.) I truly wish that I could attend the Ohio service on Saturday morning, but I cannot. Please know that all of us at Westerville North High School (past and present) share in your sadness.

    • Dear Miss Stonebraker:
      Thank you for your kind words of condolences. I’m Quinn’s Life Partner of 15 years. You’ll be happy to know that although Quinn left Ohio to follow his dreams as an Entertainer, he never forgot Westerville North High School and often spoke fondly to me of his years there. They were still all so precious memories to him. I will be reaching out to you personally at WNHS. God Bless you.

    I am so sad to hear of Quinn’s passing. I went to Westerville North with Quinn and we were in choir and theater together. He was truly an amazing singer, dancer and actor. But beyond that, he was kind to everyone. Prayers to your family in this difficult time.
