    So sad to see another wonderful El Dorado County resident pass away. My Family knew John as a Loving Family Man and a Superior Businessman. I remember growing up in his NAPA store as My Dad bought ALOT of Parts for not only our Personal Vehicles, but our Logging Trucks as well. Rest in Peace John, you are long over due to go Fishing and Playing a Perfect Round of Golf. My and My Mom's Thoughts and Prayers go out to his Wonderful Family.
