To all of John’s children: Your Dad was truly a Creedmoor icon and is appreciated for all he did for his Community. While growing up I remember him being Mayor, being on the Fire Department and serving in many other capacities. Creedmoor is a better place because of him. Prayers for all during this difficult time.
