John had a great connection to St. Bernard's Parish. "He had an incredible memory of its history", Father Dan Reed said. John had great neighbors and friends. Everyone will miss John. He was always positive, and helped many people. He was always fixing something at church, or putting in a new rail. He told great stories.

Thanks John, for helping me with my car, working on the Church so much, and being one of the Ushers.
