  2. I was saddened reading of your father’s passing. Throughout the 20 years I was with the Bay,John always took the time to come by my office for a chat and coffee whenever JOCO was painting a Bay store. He was an energetic and savvy business man but most importantly to me, honest and loyal. Whenever I needed a quick job John and his crews responded–he could be counted on. John was a proud Scot and shared many stories of Scotland, his youth, National Service and athletic abilities as a young man with me.Please accept my deepest condolences, I am thinking of John and the family.

He will be missed by all whom he touched. Our deepest condolences, Karen & Wayne Wingenbach
