John was in deed very handy and did many projects for me around my home. He could do most anything and had the skill and tools in his truck ready to go. I could always tell it was John's truck as the tools weighted the back end of truck down so much the front was up in the air . When I got my puppy 8 years ago John was the first to come visit her...They were great together . RIP John aka Dorchester John

John was well known for the love and dedication he showed to his family. To his friends, he was always there to offer help or encouragement. He will be sadly missed but always remembered for his kindness and compassion.
