So sorry for John's passing. I've known him for 46 years and he always found a way to make me laugh. I've talked to him many times in the North East antique store and will miss him a lot.

My deepest sympathy Renee, Cary, Liz, & David. What a guy!!! I first met John in 1984 when he hired me to work at the Bargaineer. Over the years he became not only my employer, but my mentor, and my very best friend. He was fun to be around and always had the best ideas on how to do things! We spent many hours bouncing ideas around to improve his baby, the Bargaineer. I feel deeply that I did not keep in touch more over the last few years. I sure will miss you, John!
