  4. Bill Munch condolence:

    I last saw John when I was in Chicago March of 2020. Among other things, he took me to Home Run Inn not because he wanted to go but because I did. That’s just the way he was.

    Always opened up his house,let me use his car or give me a ride when I would visit. Even as a kid he would let me tag along,take me to Sox games even though I was much younger.

    When he would visit me in Arizona, he was ready to fix things around my house even though I never asked. He just took it upon himself cause again that’s the way he was. He was a stubborn, but kind-hearted guy who always had my back even when I didn’t deserve it.

    I will miss my big brother, rest in peace, John.

Please share your thoughts ...
