I can honestly say that you will be missed by all your friends at Handee Marts. I hope I was as much a friend to you as you were to me. Sorry we didn't stay in touch as we should have, though I did try. Rest in peace with Lois and Johnny. May your family know how lucky they were.

I worked with John at Handee Marts 7-Eleven. Also played poker with him numerous times. Great knowing him and the world has lost a great guy.

John you were a very special person who touched everyone with your class! I thought of you often and hoped you were enjoying your retirement I smile when I think of the plastic flower story & how often you misplaced your eyeglasses (they were usually on your head!) Rest in peace my friend!
