I worked with John at Allen-Bradley for many years. He was very conscientious worker. He ran the print room in the systems group. At Allen-Bradley we would adopt families for christmas. Whenever the mother wanted boots or jackets, John would buy and bring back beautiful warm jackets or boots, because he wanted to make sure the kids were okay. He attend many Allen-Bradley Social events as Plum and he brought smiles to many faces. His absence will be missed.

John was a great Shriner, and a valuable member of the Tripoli Clowns. Plum was easily recognizable with his purple nose, wig, and costumes. He was a favorite with the children, and was very adept at twisting balloon animals. He was also a very devoted Associate Guardian for the Job's Daughters. I was proud to work with him in the Clown Unit. He will be missed. I thank his family for sharing John with us.
