    John was always a calm person, always ready to lend a hand in a positive direction. Whenever he made a statement it was with thought and caring. He could break down something which seem complex and make it simple. He was a genuine man who took pride in all he did. I was so happy for him when Leslie came into his life. She was the bubbly and exhuberant person that made him smile. I can see him smiling when they were together, the way his lips just curled at the ends, and his eyes would light up at her presence. It was fun to see them in love and become a family. How luck they were to find a special someone. I extend my heartfelt sympathy to Leslie and John’s family. We were blessed to have known John. We do not realize the gift we have in front of us until it is taken away. Thank you John for being a friend, co-worker and someone I looked up to. I am sure you are in a happier place; but we will miss your presence among us.
