My husband and I and friend Carmena enjoyed John ( email N2OWN) as fellow advocates when he was Matawan Police Dispatcher. We all attended a Matawan committee meeting to advocate for accessibility then for him as Equalizers.
Once , John In a crowded , narrow aisles dollar store "accidentally" knocked things over with Frank, his also devilish (ticketed Middletown police cars) police officer brother Frank's support. I remember one long phone conversation with him about life! We will miss him , and remember the
smile and humor he showed as in this photo.
