To the family of John; I worked with John at the AmHonda office in Chicago in the 80's. We worked very closely on many projects together. John was a dependable asset to our operation. He had a great calm demeanor that could lighten up a stressful situation. In addition to work activities, John helped me with some personal issues. He was great to work with.
I'm so sorry to hear of his passing.
My condolences to all of you.
