John was one of the first people I became close to when I started working at Southeast Delco SD. He was just that guy that was easy to get along with and made your work day fun. He will be missed.

John and I got hired around the same time at Southeast Delco. I have so many memories and stories that will always bring a smile to my face. It was such a joy to get to know his whole family and see him become a grandfather. His family was everything to him, he was an amazing man and coworker. My heart breaks for his family.
