I first met John in the mid '80s at the Perry Plant, and we quickly became friends. At and outside of work, John's sense of humor would always brighten my day. My condolences to all of his family and friends.

John was a wonderful person to work with (24 yrs+) and enjoy a drink with. Though a avid Pittsburgh Steelers fan I accepted that short coming and always enjoyed his ability to just enjoy life. He was missed during our retirement years and he will be missed in his passing. I offer his family my heart felt condolences. Levi Shearer

Many fond memories of spending time with John, always had a smile and good story. Great neighbor and friend. God called John early - must have a special task that only John can handle ?

John was a life long neighbor and great friend to the Beashau family. His candor, dedication to his family, and humor will be remembered. RIP Johnny

My condolences to the family and friends mourning the loss of John. He was a man of great candor and had a fantastic sense of humor. He was a life long neighbor and my siblings and I grew up with Derek. He had incredible work ethic and loved his family dearly. My father David Beashau who passed in 2004 worked with John at the Perry Power Plant and was close friend with John. He will be awaiting him in heaven with a frosty beer and surely some razzing. Keeping Arlene, Derek, and Dorothy in our thoughts.
