Johnny was a kind and helpful person who I admired very much. I was suprised there is no mention of his love for Stamp Collecting in his obituary. He was a lifetime member of the Allentown Philatelic Society, and other philatelic organizations.

I will always remember his kindness to me.

I offer his family my heatfelt condolances.
