It seems as if I have known Johnny my whole life,,, he backed over my first bicycle that i had left behind his car... lol
I really thought alot of him,, he always gave me sound advice,, when i was young, he took me to the side and showed me how to move steel without getting hurt... the way i was doing it was not the right way. He would often tell me to weigh out everything, how i was going to do something, to prevent stuff from happening. I went into the Navy and used his sage advice and still do to this day. what he taught me kept me alive many times.
Rest in peace Johnny

my condolences to Jo , Pat and family
