It was special for me to hang out with John and his two sons, John and George several years ago on an Alaskan fishing trip. John being John was letting our guide know that he understood boats and oceans (being a former lobster and East coast fishing guy) and not a novice. Lots of laughter and a few beers. I'll remember those days...John always made you feel part of his family. Chuck Baird

So very sorry that I am not able to attend the Mass on the 18th. I have nothing but fond memories of "Johnny Munz"---from stories my Dad shared of their days "on the job", to babysitting in Miller Place when the children were small. May he be at peace. Ginny Reilly Drews
