I am so sorry for your loss!   While I didn't know John socially, I met him at our house on several occasions as he was working for Hayner.  He was a very nice, polite and considerate man.    I know he'll be greatly missed.

Shocked and sadden to read of John's passing.  I had the pleasure of meeting John through his work and always found him such a pleasure to be around.  The world has lost one of the good guys.  Sincere sympathy to his family and friends.

Deepest sympathy to the family and friends of John, he was such a good guy

Mon, Aug 21, 2017 at 10:34 AM

My sincere condolences to you all.  I have fond memories of "Johnny" back when he worked at the Gas Station in Richwood. My friends and I would go up to the station, hang out and wash car windows. Johnny taught me how to check and fill fluids, check my tires and brakes. He taught that young Teenage girl how to take car of her car... Great Guy!!
