John was my first friend when I began working at The Home Depot and truly made me feel welcome. He was encouraging, thoughtful and always pointed out the positive in not so positive situations. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. John will truly be missed:blue_heart:

I will miss you John. You were the first and the last friendly face I saw at Home Depot and the best at making everyone feel welcome. Always had a wonderful story to share and a joke to make anyone laugh on even their worst days. My condolences go out to the family and I wish everyone comfort and peace in these sad times.
