I’m so sorry to hear of John’s passing!  A great one has left us.  He made work at Armstong so much fun.  I’ll never forget his bionic man tape loading, or the stories of his adoption, or his training Cindy to type amundo at the end of every command.  Our thing was to pass each other in the hall. I would say, “nice tie, John”. He would say, “its a rental”.  Hope you have a lot of fancy rental ties there in heaven, Buckshot!  Maybe the angels can give you the booty you always wanted, too.  Mybheart hoes out to you Shirley and family.. Love you!!!!  Kristy Knutson

John was one of the funniest people I ever had the pleasure of working with. He made long days go by more quickly in the data center. I thought of him just Friday when I was picking up a UHaul trailer at the “portable hacienda”. RIP, buddy.

Good morning, Shirley. Sad and sorry to hear the news of John’s passing. Like many others I had the privilege and honor of working with John for a long time in Armstrong’s IT department. We worked a lot together, we learned a lot together and we definitely laughed a lot together!😁 While coworkers, more importantly, we were friends for which I am truly grateful. My sincerest condolences to you and the rest of your family.

Shirley,
Both my wife and I were devestated this morning when we read John’s obit. We are truly sorry and offer our condolences. Many good years spent with John Boy….he was the master of dry wit and could always make us laugh. He certainly was appreciated for that and his work ethic. May he rest in peace and blessings to you.
