Baas family, so sorry to hear of your loss. I worked with John at Windemuller and it was always fun working with him. John had a dry wit and something was always happening. After I retired and began wintering in Florida and it was a joy to find John and Arlene at Bradenton CRC and in the trailer park next door to ours. We had fun reconnecting. We share your loss and wish you God's blessings, Roger and Thelma Laninga
