To the family of John Posa, this was truly an extreme shock to hear. John was a tremendous guy, always willing to share knowledge and help you any way he possibly could. If he didn't know the answer he knew someone who did and gladly made the connection for you or reached out on your behalf. He will truly be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this tough time. May the peace of God be with you.
