My condolences to the family of Mr. John Moorehead.

Being the fact that I was a 1953 graduate of Froebel High School and being the fact that I was also employed by US Steel in Gary, Indiana and being the fact that John and I worked in the Sheet Division and occasionally had chance meetings when required by the business.
Our chance meetings were always pleasant and enjoyable being we were former Blue Devils and being that John was always a professional and always a gentlemen. Being of the high caliber individual and a really nice person brought back good memories and prompted me to say good by to a former co-worker.

R.I.P. You did life well.
