    So sorry to hear of his passing. I had the pleasure of working with John at Paoli Inc. He always had a smile on his face & just so pleasant. He was an avid coin collector & he got me interested and would pick up coins for me. Such a sweet man. Prayers for the family.

    John has been a good friend of our family for years. We have had a lot of fun times with him. John was young at heart and always laughing and cracking a joke even if he had already told them several times. John was like a member of our family and kind of adopted our granddaughters, Abby, Ally and Ashlyn . He loved them and they loved him. He also loved our dog Annie and the feeling was mutual. We shared many meals, vacations, Christmases and Thankgivings with him. He will be truly missed by all of us. RIP dear friend!
