Toni, Joe, Jackie, Nicki, and family,
I was fortunate to have spent time with John when I was a young man/auto technician.  I learned a lot from him, certainly about cars and brakes, (his specialty), along with  a lot of his techniques I have used and passed along to others over the years. I also learned about finance, and life from him as well. Always a crooked smile, a funny story, a grumble or 2 (lol). His face lit up instantly when asked of his daughters, updating me with what was going on with them. One of my great mentors in my early adulthood, which helped shape me and my endeavors. 
My thoughts and prayers are with you all. 
Best Regards
