Not sure what to say?

I too have fond memories of his little jewelry store. My mom having worked in Girard for years, used his store all the time. I still have my "sweet 16" birthstone ring and graduation watch she bought me there.
Condolences to the family especially old friends Becky and Pat.

I'm vey sorry not knowing about your passing and attending the funeral I will always remember when I and Louis Toschi came in when Louis purchased a new watch and listened to his jokes he was so funny God Bless to the family he will always be in your hearts

Girard has lost another "special person" with the passing of John. We bought many pieces of jewelry from him, including both our wedding rings. It was always a joy to go into his jewelry store & wouldn't let you leaved until he told you a joke or two. He was also a wonderful neighbor to our family & I remember babysitting his children.
Our deepest sympathy to his family.
RIP Dear Friend

I'm so sorry for your loss. It was always a pleasure visiting Uncle Bud in the store and being on the receiving end of his great sense of humor. He will be missed. Now, he is reunited with Aunt Margaret once again. God bless.

Our deepest sympathy and prayers for the family.

I'm so sorry for your loss. John was always such a joy to be around. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I'm sorry I missed the funeral and the wake. My husband, Marvin Williams, was a good friend to John. Marvin bought my wedding rings from John. May God give his children and grandchildren comfort during this time of sorrow.

My deepest Sympathy and prayers of comfort for the family.

John always made you feel happy and he accepted everyone as they were. I know each of you kids have great memories of your dad, and as you grieve his passing, those memories will sustain you during this time.
