Our sincere thoughts & prayers are with you. Worked with John at Maytag. Always known for his long ponytail. So surprised the next time I saw home he had cut it off. Of course I made him turn around to see cuz I hadn't realized pigs could fly...too funny. We got to see him at Maytag region..never changing smiling good guy. Plus got to see him when he came & visited us when he was in the parade at the 4th ofJuly celebration in Bussey. His big smile & friendliness will be forever remembered. Our deepest condolences to his family.
