I continue to go McCaskey’s football and basketball games, but I miss my great riding companion Brother Johnny. For the past 8 years we went together to as many games as we could! Johnny, who had an attitude of grattitue every game, would thank me all way home every game! “Brother Frank, this is best trip I’ve ever been on” he’d say almost every game! We truly had a marvelous ride together everytime listening to the Oak Rige Boys and the Statler brothers in the van as we’d celebrate love and life and being a McCaskey Tornado! I truly miss my great brother Johnny! I rest assured that someday once again we will be riding together once again up yonder watching our boys in red and black! Thank you Brother Johnny!

We send our condolences to the Underwood family for the passing of Johnny.  He overcame so much to live a life of kindness and grace.  His funeral was moving.  As his pastor said he is now dining with the King.  May his memory be eternal.  Niko Veronis and the Veronis family

We will miss Mr Underwood and his sports updates on Sunday afternoons. I coached Youth Football for years at Manheim Township and Mr. Underwood was always at the games encouraging our boys and giving Football and Baseball score updates from his radio. All the coaches and boys loved him. He will be missed.
