I worked with John back at the old A&P in the late 80's. When I saw his obituary this morning, it made me sad because John was my favorite guy to work with there. He was hilarious, and made the night shift fly by. I will never forget when he caught a shop lifter who was trying to steal a watermelon by pretending to be pregnant. I still laugh about that til this day. He was a good person and I thought a lot of him. I am truly sorry for your loss. Rest in Peace John.
