John always enjoyed working with you at Trinity and enjoyed the times we’d go to Italian Club to have a couple beers. When Trinity shut down and we got different jobs you’d still stop by the house and we’d just talk about old times or sports…especially Reynolds wrestlingl Rest in Peace Joh..you will be missed. Sincere condolences to Mary and family.
My sympathies to the Bresnan families. John was a great guy.
My prayers to Tom’s (Squirrel ) AND HIS FAMILY . My dad just loved him , like so many
