The first thing out of John Iovine’s mouth is an apology. “You got to forgive me if I don’t remember too much,” he says. “I had a stroke.” Signs of that stroke are everywhere — the bed in the dining room, a shower installed in the pantry. 

John is thin, and sits in blue pajama pants in the wheelchair he uses to get around. He may, however, have overstated his memory problems. “We went to Harding … that’s the school right up here,” he says.
