I worked with John at Ameren for a long time and he was one of best men I ever knew and always ready with a funny comment. He was a very kind person and often spoke of his family. I will miss him very much even though I have not seen him in a while. God bless all of you.

So sorry for your loss. I knew John from way back when we were both younger. I also got to work with him at Illinois Power when he recognized me from my earlier days. He will be missed.
