Candy and Casey, John and I worked together some years ago (before kids!) at SHN. He made work fun, and my visual picture of him is him smiling and joking around. And so bright and sharp! I am sorry for your loss. His death is a loss for all of us in the engineering community.
Oh Candy & Casey, our hearts are just crushed for you! John was such an incredible man, so full of life and love! It's hard to believe that he is gone, but he leaves us all with so many wonderful memories, and a wonderful example of how we should each live our lives. He loved you both so much--you meant the world to him, and he will always be watching over you. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers, and that we are here for you if you need anything at all.
John was a real trouper that made the most of his life, and as a result, enrichened the lives of those who knew him. He will be missed by all of us. Our Heartfelt condolences go out to Candy, Casey and the rest of his family. We consider ourselves blessed to have known him.
