I met John in October 1968 when I started at Cadillac Printing and Lithographing Corp as it was called then. I knew right away that John would be a special person in my life. He became a mentor, future boss and the best friend you could have ever hope for the rest of my life. The adjectives are endless but a terrific human being is how I can best describe my dear friend. I will miss you my friend. You’re with God now.
