Theresa and family,
You have my deepest condolences for the loss of your dad. John and I worked together in the early 70's at Amerling Volkswagen, he was a very big influence to me in the automotive world! we shared many conversations about hunting, firearms, auto mechanics, and many life experiences in general! I will remember him always, and wish peace to all the Carney family during this time. Rest in peace, John, your work here is done!
