John was a friend from the Tower Health rehab program,  Such a kind man with many memories of  Reading and Philadelphia.   His stories helped to pass the hour as we all struggled with our illnesses.  I am sorry for your loss Karen and know how hard these days can be.

John was a good man & a good friend.  He was my next door neighbor on Hollenbach St when growing up in the 60's.. Chris Hintz, another neighbor & I spent many a night just hanging out with John in the 1970's.  We would ride along with John when he was doing a Postal Star route during that time.  
Karen & Jens, Carmen & I offer our most sincere condolences in this sad time.
