My condolences to the family. John was one of hardest working persons I have ever met. I remember on a cold winter day John and I were building a cable lead in a nearby town. (We both were lineman for Illinois Bell Telephone) John was working one end of the lead & I was at the other end. I had finished my end and was walking back to our work truck. From a distance I could see John had already returned to the truck and was inside trying to get warm. When I reached the truck I opened the door to get in and there was John stripped of all of his clothes. "JOHN WHAT THE H... IS WRONG WITH YOU 5 DEGREES AND YOUR ALMOST NAKED" What I didn't know is that John fell through the ice,in the ditch, and was soaked. Now this made sense and restored my confidence in John. We stayed in the warm truck the rest of the day and laughed our heads off. Thanks for the good memories Brother and R.I.P.
