John was such a kind, caring, and giving person. He hired me at Southwest Electric in 2000. He always made me laugh and treated his employees like family. He was the best boss/person anyone could ask for; always willing to drop anything to help when needed. I know he will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I still can see the huge smile he would have when he would talk about each of you.
