    I worked with John for about 7 years at the LA refinery. Whenever the team had a tough question, they would nominate John to ask. John had the unique way of asking these questions that made us laugh but also made us think. As Time went by I learned to john go and ask John. If he thought it was a good idea I knew the rest of the team would get on board. John often made me look a lot smarter then I actually was! I moved from LA 10 years ago but have reached out to him from time to time. I still uses some of his advice on a regular basis. My family will have your family in our thoughts and prayers.
