I remember John giving me 2 huge buckets of goats milk so I could make cheese many years ago. He was always a happy and good-natured.
He will be missed.
My prayers are with his family.

Deepest sympathy to John's family from his bus family at First Student. John was dedicated to his job, never missing a day, or a student. He was one of those employees you never worried about because you always knew he was out there doing his very best. He will be missed very much by both office staff and co-workers
