    I worked with John at Harris and, though we rarely worked on the same projects, I saw John often around the office. He was a great guy to talk to and we would often discuss the issues we were working on. I want to extend my deepest condolences to John’s friends and family. He will be missed.

    Denise, I use to walk home from school with John in grammar school many years ago. So sorry he never made it to any of our reunions, he was missed. My deepest sympathy to you and your family at this difficult time. Comfort and peace to you all.
