I was very fortunate to work with John for his whole career here at Vac-Con and also at Florida Machine and Foundry dating back to 1978. He was a very interesting and articulate man with many good ideas. One of the things he helped me with was photographing each and every truck we built here at Vac-Con. He will be missed.

Angie, I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved Grandpa. I know how much you love him and you did such a wonderful job of being caretaker to him. I pray that you take comfort in knowing he is in the arms of Jesus and with your Grandma and you will again see him one day.

I will forever remember his smile each time I greeted him with "hi handsome." A special place in my heart has been assigned to both John and Sally. Glad you've been re-united in Heaven... and feeling the absence of you here.
