Lydia, Matheau, Sarah, Alexander and Olivia,
I unfortunately haven’t had much contact with your husband/dad over the last 30 years because I moved across the country. But I do remember him as a very kind, smart, positive and steady man and am very sorry for your loss. He was personally a big influence on my brother Bobby. My prayers and positive thoughts for your family...

In just a short time knowing John professionally he was as kind, knowledgeable, and all around salt-of-the earth gentlemen as I have met. The construction world is lesser today without him. My condolences to his family.
