As one of the many that learned a great deal about our Gas Business from John, I share in many of the sentiments I have just read posted here regarding the ever knowledgeable, ever professional, ever caring, and ever respectful individual that John was at work. A more dedicated employee and friend will be impossible to find. My deepest condolences to Judy and all of the family members that survive John. John, I hope to have the chance of meeting you again at the end of the rainbow bridge!
