I worked at Rite Aid with John in Barberton and then opened the Wadsworth Rite Aid when it was brand new. He was such a nut, what character! Last I knew, he was working at Sterling and then, of course, we all go to different jobs and lives. Beverly, I'm so sorry for your loss, your children and grandchildren have lost a wonderful Grandfather, too.
