Kevin, Diane, Adam, and David Capatch,
John touched all of our lives. I met him when Greg Mathias offered him a job at the Beaver Springs plant for JPM. Greg said, “ I just hired the sign guy”. What we didn’t know, but soon found out was we hired an amazing talent. John transformed himself, and the people and processes around him. He left his touch on so many! I treasure his art, and his artistry. I would end my contacts with him with, “Keep the Faith!”, and that he did. The Peace of Christ to Terri and Family, all our Love, - Kevin
