Susanne - I'm so very sorry to learn of John's passing. Whether you knew it or not, the kindness with which you and John treated a dorky paper-boy in Camborne in the late 70's made a difference. To this very day, in spite of all evidence to the contrary, I still defend the AMC Pacer as one of the coolest cars ever, because you and John had one! I'm so sorry for your loss. He was a good guy.

Sorry Susan to hear of John’s passing. I worked with him in the union for several years and found him very easy to work with and he treated me with great respect.
