We are sadened to learn of John's passing. We had not seen him in quite some time. But we have very fond memories of him. He was our neighbor in Milford when his children were small. We would run into him from time to time since then. John was a good spirited person who we'll always remember.

I just now learned of John's Passing. I am so sorry and the family have my most deepest condolence. I met John in the early 90's as being one of my plumbing customers. I installed a heating system among other things for John and we quickly became great friends. As an example of his wonderful friendship, John helped me put a 2nd story on my house. I shall never get his help as a friend and just an all around great person with outstanding integrity. I never got to meet most of Johns kids, but Jason stood out for me. I tracked Jason from the time the age 15 and he, like his dad were both remarkable men. I am so so sad. I happen to visit this week and I was making plans to see him, a surprise visit, like many surprise visits in the past. It seems I was the one unfortunately surprised. John you weren't supposed to go. John you are a great guy and I will meet in the afterlife I am sure. It will be another surprised visit. Miss you man!
