Chuck and Carol Mayer are extremely sorry to hear of John's passing! We send our prayers and condolences to his family. We have worked together though the years at Industrial First and Midwest Equipment. In Florida we would spend time together withmutual friends from work in Ohio and meet for a memorial lunch or dinner. I remember at work, should I need a chocolate fix, I could go to Johns desk and find a cookie or two. Thank you whoever send him these as they never seem to go away! John will always be in our thoughts and prayers.
