To the Autorino Family, I was saddened to day to heave heard of the passing of John. My former husband Richard Hansen thought highly of John and his involvement in the Elks. During my time here in Florida I so enjoyed his posts on Facebook and I will miss them. My prayers are with your family at this time. sincerely Judy Hansen Gonzalez
