I am devastated to learn of John's passing. I worked with John for well over 20 years at Pilot Metal. We had so much fun together and he was a good friend. I remember our talks and our comradery as we struggeled through the good times of our professional and personal lives. I remember asking John for advise about leaving Pilot and his advise was profound and I still use his words when someone approaches me with a similar dilemma. I'm sorry I wasn't here for his services and that I just found out. Nancy, I know how much John loved you and I want you to know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Much love, Darlene Freykar

John was a pillar in the businesses where he worked. He was a wealth of knowledge and good advice, both which he delivered with a calm, confident and eloquent manner. He was never shy to get hands-on or tackle any tough situation. He inspired confidence in those he worked with and encouraged them to be their best. He was a “go-to” guy and he will be deeply and sincerely missed.
