Once I finished the training school at National I was sent to John's floot to build the small cold headers. There I learned the only way to learn about what makes National machines so special was to actually build them.  Over the years John and I had numerous discussions and I always respected his ideas and thoughts. He was one of the great mentors that I had at National.
Please remember all of the great memories together!

To Jen and Family, I am so sorry for your loss.  Your Dad was a special person, for sure!  Thinking of you with thoughts and concern.  It's hard to lose your parents.

With sincere sympathy...we have fond memories of both John and Jan when we would go with them and a group of other fun-loving couples on bowling tournament weekends together. Smiles and laughter seemed to be at least, if not more, important than the bowling! May he Rest In Peace, united with Jan once again. Our prayers to all of you.
