To Johnny JR, Carol and family
Regretfully, I write this letter to you and your families to offer my condolences. Uncle John was a good man. A man that was a mentor to me. When I was a kid, he was pretty much like a big brother to me. If he had a place to go to or something to do, he would invite me to tag along.
Uncle John, worked for a sofa manufacturer and as a school maintenance man. He always excelled in everything that he did. He was committed to completing the task at hand to the best of his abilities. He was a very talented man at whatever he did.
As a kid I was a witnessed to his accomplished roller skating. He was so outgoing and easy to talk to that it was easy for him to attract the friendship of others. Uncle John will be missed by everyone who knew him!
Sincerely Gabe Arteaga
My Condolences to all Johnny’s family…iam sure he will be missed such a good hearted person. He’s earned his wings and will soar with angels.
