    I only knew John as my Pharmacist for many, many years at the Walgreens store in Kenosha…
    What a nice man! He always had a smile and a genuine “hello” every time I came into the store ..and, anytime I had a question on a prescription, John had an answer with a pleasant , friendly special way about him.
    I truly liked him…as I’m sure hundreds of other customers do….He will be sadly missed when I come into the Walgreens store.
    I hope nothing but, the best to his wife…and family.
