    John Piron reminds me of my grandfather, Wally someone who could fix anything. A trait most notably passed on to his two sons. In the short time I’ve known John and his family they have always been there to help. I would just like to say Thank You and I care very much for you’re family.

    I remember him as the Christmas Tree Man….my parents would always buy their trees from Mr. Piron. Can’t be there for the family or won’t be able to sing in Resurrection Choir due to prior committment but will say extra prayers for the family and close friends….
