What can I say about losing a good friend I’ve known for 40 years. John’s sense of humor always made it fun. His genuine love and concern for others made us feel better about ourselves. I worked with John at Reynolds and Reynolds for 25 of those 40years. No one had a better work ethic and cared more than John. In his 2nd career, John’s dedication to the students and parents at Brother Rice was non-stop. His work was always excellent. His friendship was loyal and loving. I will miss him dearly. Unfortunately, his passing happened while my wife and I are on vacation in Florida for two weeks. I am very sorry that I cannot attend his life celebration. My sympathy to his loving wife Lorraine.

I was fortunate to know John during our younger years and worked along side of him cutting meat at Stan’s Market.
We shared a lot of good times and laughs. One exception is the time late in the evening that he inadvertently inserted his hand in the cube machine. Into my car and off to The Mount Carmel ED we went-fortunately he escaped without any major damage,
I will always fondly remember his unique laughter
RIP John!
