John was a great guy and had a good sense of humor he would come down to southeastern Arizona to my department and instruct training classes here for my dept.
He will be greatly missed!
Condolences to John's immediate family, his Mesa Fire Department family, and his friend's.
Godspeed Captain John Delaney__________________
