My sincere condolences on the loss of John to you & your family, Ethel. I’m Bill Morgan’s wife, Kathy. Sadly, Bill passed away 12/20/21 from bladder cancer, 11 weeks after being diagnosed with stage IV and it came out of nowhere. Kelly & I were devastated. Many prayers to you all. We also used Pittsburgh Cremation Services, but we didn’t have an obituary. 🙏

John was a helluva good Sales Engineer and will be missed by many including me, who considered him a best friend. He's now without pain and likely hitting them straight down the fairway. God bless Ethel and the family.

John was hard working and dedicated to his profession and was well liked by clients and colleagues alike. I considered John to be a great friend and I am fortunate to have known him. Some called John my brother from another mother as we were similar in our appearance. I will miss him greatly. My sincerest condolences to John's family and loved ones. God's speed my friend till we meet again.
