I can remember so many days in the Audit Department, with John being my supervisor. Grabbing morning coffee, talking with him in his office until the coffee cart came around for break time...and talking some more until lunch...and more discussions after lunch. I can remember discussing his, his Dad, and sister’s move to Old Forge...apprehensive, but looking forward to enjoying doing a ‘hobby’ for a living. After moving, I enjoyed our meetings at ‘Friendlys’ on Main St., drinking coffee and smoking for hours, even thru shift changes!
I’m glad for the opportunity of having a good friend, and will miss our talks.

I think of all of you often as I drive through Snyder and down Hertel Ave. May God bless you with strength and peace at this time of Johnny’s death.

My sincere condolences to the Drrexelius family. John was not only a great guy and artist, but always interesting to talk to. I had many conversations with him during my time in the Audit Dept. of M&T as well as after he had left the bank. I will always treasure the work of art he gave me when I visited the store in Old Forge!
