I spent many years working with John at Fun Fest. He and my father were the same age, so he was always a second father to me. We enjoyed meeting up when he came to town, usually for a trip to our shared dentist. John was honorable and kind and I learned so much from him. He was invaluable to Fun Fest and started and managed many practices we still follow today. Many days he left very late at night only to return a few short hours later to help with an event. Thank you so much for sharing your father with me. He meany a great deal to me. Lucy Fleming
