John was a lifelong entrepreneur. He was a hard worker and always created his own path. John never gave up. His determination was one of his most honourable traits. John was loved by not only his family, but his customers and community as well.
Tradition was very important to John. One of his most special traditions was giving everyone who left his home a blessing with a cross on their forehead. No one left without it, and everyone loved to receive it.
