We are saddened to share that a past volunteer of the Co-Op’s has passed away. John Williams showed us all the true meaning of being a servant of God. John would fill in in any position he was needed. He had a deep strong voice and an unmistakable, infectious laugh that was always heard throughout the Co-Op. His deep concern for those in need in our community was evident in all that he did. We will miss him but celebrate the time that we had with him and rejoice that he is with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
