Kevin McKim shared the sad news that domain investor John Yeomans reportedly passed away:
So, so, sad to hear of the passing of our old time domainer friend John Yeomans, Johnny ‘Net’ (3rd) on rt. He sold a lot of .nets. We’ve often wondered where he was as he went dark a few years ago. 😥 RIP Johnny! #domainer #domains pic.twitter.com/KasotMvOos

According to an obituary posted on the Dignity Memorial website, John passed away earlier this week “after battling a chronic illness for many years.”
I did not know John all that well, but we had several conversations at conferences and via email over the years and did at least one deal I can recall about ten years ago. As Kevin mentioned, John seemed to have disappeared from the domain investment space several years ago, and I always wondered where he went and why.
I have fond memories of John, and I am sure he will be missed.
