John was a great person. I got to work with him over the years while working as Director of Employee Relations. John knew everything about MDOT and all the people who worked there. Not to mention all of the people throughout the state who knew and respected him for his knowledge and ability. He used to keep an eye on me as we negotiated labor agreements with unions representing state employees. He was a tremendous resource and always wanted to make sure employees were treated fairly. He always had a smile to offer, even when his ears turned red in discussions with me over negotiation issues. In a word, he was the best of the best. Thoughts and prayers to family and friends as they go through the loss of this great man

John was a good and decent man. I could tell so many stories. Those who knew him better could tell so many more. Passionate about his work, yet he could be funny, kind, and worked up all in the same instant. I've missed him since I have been gone from MaineDOT and he will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing and working with him.

I had the privilege and pleasure of working with "J.D." for twenty years or more. During that time I also got to know some of the family; my heartfelt condolences to you all. John was a teacher, a leader, a great manager and one who was never afraid to bring a little humor into the workplace. Working beside him and watching him manage MDOT's "field troops" during the Flood of '87, the Ice Storm of '98, and other emergency situations was truly something to behold. His grasp of the situation, ability to quickly determine the best response, and then to implement it was exceptional. His legend will live on at DOT for decades, as well it should. Rest in peace, J.D..

I had the great pleasure of working with this fine man during my tenure at DOT...I appreciated his wisdom and his wit. Whether we agreed or not, there was always respect! My favorite memory was a rafting trip down the Kennebec with Russian sister-city emissaries! They broke the mold after they made this one! Thanks for being you, John!
To family and close friends, my heart is with yours; you were fortunate to have him in your lives!
