John was such a sweet man. He made working at Morrell’s even better. I would always get a good morning hun and a big hug. He would tell me stories about his family, especially his kids. We would always just sit and talk and do his favorite puzzles together. Also on craft day he was one of the first volunteers. He is truly missed at the house!
