John was a nice man. I admire how he cared for his Mother. My sympathies to Friends and family.

I was so sorry to hear of Johns passing. We were distant cousins.
When my mother lived at River Park Plymouth and was not well, John would go check on her and get her mail at times.
John was a very caring person.
