J.B was a great person to work with and a friend. I have many fond memories of the years we worked together at Garnett # 5 and later at Jobbers Automotive Warehouse. I most admired how smart he was in the business world having owned Superior Auto Supply. We had many fun visits over the years about the automotive business the way it used to be and current times. I most admired what a calm easy going person he was. When I would be worked up having a bad day he could calm me down in a second. I never saw him excited as he was always the quiet type but I soon learned the gears were always turning as he was always thinking a few steps ahead of anyone in the room. J.B was a hard worker as he always found something to keep busy with that made a difference. I admired his motivation with the rental houses and he shared many fun stories about them. J.B was a true gentleman and it was a pleasure to know and work with him. I learned a lot from him. I will always treasure the fond memories of the times we worked together. J.B will be deeply missed by all. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

J.B. was nothing but a great person and good friend from the time he hired me at Dons Auto Supply to the time we became partners of Superior Auto Supply and beyond once we went our separate ways. He was one of these persons that would go the extra mile to help out. I always enjoyed his company and the company of his family and his brother Evan which were always so very good to us. His kids and mine grew up together and enjoyed the times when we got together. I relish our fishing trips (although not often enough) enjoyed talking shop and cars with him. I could write a book on how much he influenced me. His family has been through some tough times with the recent loss of Brian and now the loss of him. I will truly miss him. Vicki and Julie if we can help in any way please don't hesitate to ask. Our Prayers are With You !
