    I’m sorry to read this. John hired me in 1987 to teach at Mintonye when we moved back from Missouri. I worked for him until he retired.
    My condolences to you, Pauline, and to your family.

    John did not have a choice in my position as art teacher at Mintonye, as I transferred into the position from another TSC building, but I soon grew to respect and appreciate his dedication the students and community. I remember him coming to me several times with extra money at the end of a school year to offer to my program. I also remember the 30 minutes I visited with him as we both rode an exercise bike at the Y a few years ago.
    Prayers to your family,
    Judy Ryan
