I had the opportunity on several occasions to work with John and his partners on several of their real estate acquisitions. John was a true gentleman, the definition of a class act !! Deepest condolences to the entire Mock family!

As a Hospice Chaplain it is my privilege to walk briefly beside families in their darkest hours. Being with John and Mary has been a gift to me. Their strong and resilient spirit as a couple and their devotion to their grand children, shone through so clearly in the family that I met. This legacy is truly a blessing. May John rest in peace and rise in glory.
