I have known John since I was 18 years old and he put tires on my car. His shop was on Farmington Avenue right around the corner from Raymond Road. I have been a customer of his for 43 years. I always enjoyed going into the shop and sharing our "Italian" stories with each other. John will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family as well as his associates and employees at Modern Tire.

I am so sorry for your loss. My father worked for him and I adored John! He always made my sister and I laugh! He was a wonderful person to be around. Full of life. Please let the memories help you through these hard times.

I knew John when we were all kids and he was at Pat's Tire. I followed his growth in business when he took over the present shop from Bennett on Raymond Rd and then Guthries Mobil next door. I used to stop in when I was on duty in W.Htfd and asked him when he was going to buy the rest of Raymond Rd. He always had a joke or story to tell and was lots of fun. My thoughts and prayers are with his family for their loss of this wonderful man.

John was,plain and simply, a great guy. For all the years we lived in West Hartford, Modern Tire and its Mobil pumps was our go to place. The problem was that if John was there, we never left in less than half an hour. I used to kid him that he watered his gas to make more money and his retort was always only for you. After we moved to Boston, he watched over my mother until she passed away
at 92. A great friend and, even though I had not seen him
in some years, a man I will always remember fondly- with a smile on my face.
