He raised him as his own son from the moment he entered Bob’s life.
John was an incredibly hard worker. He was passionate about his career with ACF Environmental, even taking work calls up to 3 days prior to his passing.
John loved to fish. He and Bob enjoyed many hours together out on the water. John was a dog lover. He was a true believer that dogs are mans best friend. John was an avid Atlanta Braves fan. He treasured the trips to the Sleep Inn in Lewes Beach, DE with Susan and with his granddaughters. He was a doting Poppop who loved his girls more than anything. But most of all John was a great man. Everyone that met him was drawn to his caring nature and rambunctious sense of humor. He will be missed by all that knew him.
