    My prayers are with the family, I met John in the late 1940’s or early 1950’s when my family moved to the new house in Bismarck Grove, Had a lot of fun with John and his brothers and got quite well acquainted with John’s dad also. A great bunch of people and a really good police officer. Will be greatly missed
