I was a nurse in a doctor's office when John worked at Lakeview and Albertson's. He would call for a refill for a patient and say "This Is Old John " and he would always take the time to visit and talk about our families. He was a kind, caring and compassionate person. I had not seen him in years but he was the type of person you will never forget. I am so sorry for your loss.

My family has known John since his days at the Albertsons Pharmacy on Sherwood Way and recently in Eden where he filled in at the Concho County Hospital Pharmacy. Even though we hadn't seen him in years, he greeted us by name and that huge smile of his out in Eden. John you will truly be missed by so many!
