John was my 1st Captain when I was assigned to B shift at the old Engine 32 @ 14 S. Gay St. He was a good, no B.S. Captain who taught me a lot. Later I would appreciate what a good and decent man he was. God Bless you Brother. My condolences to the family.
When I went to Engine 5, I was placed on A shift and Clarence had 3 Truck. He taught me a lot and was a steady hand. Clarence you were a good man, Union Brother and a good Fire Fighter. Thanks for the memories Bro.
