I was so saddened to hear of John's passing. I worked with him for over 13 years and enjoyed all the stories he would tell. We had such a good group of co-workers and John was so easy to work with. May he rest in peace and sending prayers to Doris and family

John worked for me at Bunzl Minneapolis. I was very saddened to hear of his passing. We spent a lot of time together working in Northern WI, plus a little golf. I learned a lot from John. He will be missed. My condolences to Doris and the family.
