    I am sorry about John. I worked at Teledyne/Continental in the 1960’s with him and” Big John’ Sr. We played cards sometimes on Friday nights and did cook outs.. I lost track of him after that and haven’t seen him in 40 years. He was a good guy. He had a yellow road runner or charger that was like riding in a rocket.

    My heartfelt condolences to Buba’s family. Love and prayers to you all. Rest peacefully Buba in God’s hands. May you all cherish the memories of wonderful times the family spent with him. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
