Sorry for your loss. I had the privilege of working with Johnny in the beverage business in Bloomington in the early 70's. He was a hard worker and it was always fun to be with him. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

My deepest condolences in the loss of Johnny, as we knew him when we all worked together at Aldens Dept store in the early 1960''s. He was so so kind, and very helpful too all that needed help in our different departments as he worked in the Shoe department and I usually worked in the womens, or casual area in the front of the store. I think he and his brother Jerry, lived not too far from my Dads store: Morrison TV and applicances!! Gods blessings to help you all in your time of grief and the days ahead-- In Gods Love, Jan ( Bruce) Bakalyar Lakefield, Mn.

Sorry to hear about the loss of my old friend John. He and I were old shoe dogs in Bloomington. I was working at Schiff's Shoe Store on the south side of the square, and I can't remember if John was at Merritt's or Tovey's shoe stores. I visited him at his little house behind Swing-In Pizza several times. I would stop in Columbia City, MO, to visit John on occasion while working in Wichita, KS. I lost contact with John in l965 when I joined the Marines and shipped off to Vietnam. Very sorry for your loss. Tom Vernon
