So sad to hear of the passing of John. Our condolences to the family and relatives, may God bless you and yours at this time of loss and help with all the memories you have. John was a very good customer of ours and always willing to lend a hand or his advice when asked. He was always smiling and very conversational. He was a pillar of the community for many years and will be missed by all who knew him.

Paul and I want to express our condolences to John's family. He was a special guy that we've known since childhood and he was always ready with a smile and a big hello!!! He will be remembered for his hours of volunteerism both at the Altamont Fair and many parades he participated in throughout the years. His love of classic cars was evident as he drove by with a different car every few years. The neighborhood won't be the same without him. Rest in Peace, Hawkeye. . You will be missed.
