The theme about his life was his million dollar smile. I remember the "arm" he built that held up his mailbox. Recently I asked him for advice about repairing my balcony. But who can ever forget his smile while he putted around town in his pickup. I'm saddened he left us so soon. Thank you, John, for making us all feel better with your daily smile that exists in our mind's eye.

I met John as a result of the demise of the Cambria Village Pharmacy. When Dana Nelson moved out, I discovered that the floor in the front of the building was sagging and the substructure had to be rebuilt. My contractor at the time was Ryan Patrick Adams and he felt, due to the complexity of the work that he would associate with John Colgan, who had more experience with that type of work.
They gave me a bid for the work and did the job, removing the "sag" and restoring the floor to a non-sag condition and the work was done with true craftmanship.
When they gave me the bill, it was $2,000.00 less than the bid. When I inquired as to why, I was told that the work did not entail as much time and effort as they had anticipated, hence the lower charge. This has never happened to me in my 45 years of dealing with contractors.
RIP John, you were a true gentleman and a man of your word.

I had just run onto him, at Costco, must have been about a week before his passing. I regret to say we didn't really talk, just a quick hello. I should have talked to him longer. What a great guy and positive attitude.

I am deeply saddened at his passing. Although I met John only a few years ago I was truly blessed to have known him and honored that he considered me a friend. He was a really good human being, uplifting, kind, caring and genuine. I am so grateful to have had what little time we shared together. I wish it had been more. He and his smiling face will be missed.
