So sorry to hear of John’s passing. I worked with John for many years at Zim Shipping. He in the L.A. office and me in Houston office. I always found John to be very knowledgeable and very helpful. May he rest in peace.

I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with John for more than 30 years. He was always “up” and usually cheerful. He was well liked and respected by employees and peers alike.

John was a great friend and I shall miss him greatly.
