    Sending prayers for peace and comfort for your entire family. He was such a sweet man who will be very missed.


    Had the pleasure of handling his Brown & Root @ Ga Pac account at Reily Electrical back in the 90's. John was always the consummate professional and so fun to work with. Deepest sympathy to his family and friends!
