John Tonn was a good man! He loved to play cards at poker and he would make you laugh. I remember on Memorial Day, when when the Post had its Merrick Post No. 1282, American Legion parade and ceremony, he would be able to fit into his uniform that he wore when he was in service. John helped the Post in many of its projects. He will be missed.
