I worked as a laborer with John on several Gilbane projects in the mid 1980’s. He was always kind to me. RIP.

My condolences to the Testa family and Robin. I always think of this :
But in all the sadness, when you feel like your heart is empty and lacking, you’ve got to remember that grief isn’t the absence of love. Grief is the proof that love is still there.
Prayers to you all

To John’s Family:
I want to extend my sincerest condolences on John’s passing.
John has been a good friend of mine and my late dad along with John’s dad for many years.
I will always remember the laughs we shared with my other friends at the Presentation Columbus Club, they are very valued memories. John was a quiet man, but when that dry sense of humor of his kicked in, you knew there was a great time ahead.
John was a devoted family man and such a good friend to all. He will be missed by so many family and friends.
Rest In Peace my friend, and may you enjoy your Heavenly Reward.
In the passing of time, I hope the void of John’s presence be replaced with the happy memories he has left behind.
