I never got a chance to come out and meet John in person. John was a supporter of the NY State Troopers Benefit Fund. I have spoken with him for several years. We always had enjoyable talks. RIP my friend. John Miller

I knew John before he opened the store tavern. We had some great times and oh how he could make me laugh. He was so kind. Feeding people on the holidays That had nowhere to go. Never missed Mass. I miss those great times and will forever have a special place in my heart for our Irish John Ryan. Rosemonty Dame..
