My sincere condolences to Kitty, John, Scott, Steve, Mikey and all the French family. I had the honor of “going to school” with the boys and I have to say that this family is one of the best I had the pleasure of being with. Again, my condolences in the loss of John.

John was a GREAT HARD WORKING MAN. John and Kit always welcomed me any time and especially on a Wednesday morning parts sales call. Always offering me a cup of coffee or even breakfast. It was a great way to start my day. John was one of my favorites. John and Kit raised a wonderful family who I am honored to call my friends. Go rest high John and watch over your family. I know you are right beside each of your boys while driving truck or plowing snow. Stay strong Kit, John, Scotty, Steve, and Mike.
Russ Clark. ❤️
