Johnny (a.k.a. Panky) was my best friend and I have known him and his family for almost 35 years. John really looked forward to us going out for dinner just about every other week (except during Covid-19 lockdown). Not only did we enjoy some excellent food, but we shared laughs, jokes, stories, and friendship. John made many friends just about everywhere we went. He would strike up a conversation with anybody and he was so easy to talk to. John had big plans to take me to the casinos, fishing trips, and the shooting range once I retired. I am very saddened that we never got the chance to do these things, but I have many fond memories of the wonderful times we did have. I am really going to miss him as others certainly will. My deepest sympathy to Amy and the entire family. We love you John!
