It always started…Hey, I’ve got one for you, and then the story started and the conversation began. Recently we spent a long afternoon together, our families have been friends for decades and John seamlessly told stories from years ago to current events. His focus always included his love for his Children and Grandaughter’s, delighted to highlight every achievement. I will dearly miss his arrival which often included a gift of food, he never arrived empty handed. RIP my friend.

First and only person to give me scrapple.
Will miss the extra lemons and Sunday NY Post (after he was done reading it)
Always good for a quick ( non PC ) conversation.
Not a perfect man but he will be missed

Mary and Sean, Liz and my mom told me about your dad. I am so sorry for your terrible loss. I remember him fondly from times in Pine Neck coming over to my mom and Jerry's to chat. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Maureen Martin Rossi
