Over the past few years I have had the pleasure of working with John at Portland Bolt. Our desks shared a partition so we worked closely together and shared many a laugh. He always brightened my day whether it be with a funny joke, an encouraging phrase, a silly song or his infectious laugh and smile. His incredible amount of knowledge, not only in the fastener industry, but throughout the entire construction industry is unmatched and irreplaceable. I will miss my friend deeply and my prayers go out to his family and friends.
