In Loving Memory of John J. Post Sr.

   John was a loving husband and devoted father. He tried to be in control, but the driveway did get blacktopped and the pool did go in. (and yes he did go swimming ONCE.)  He did win one battle. The deer head IS over the fireplace.  He finally taught Mary to keep her left arm straight while golfing, and Alexandra now knows if you hold a cat on their back they will get pneumonia.  John began his flying career at the age of 15. You can mention his name at any airline and he will be known by someone. He is an icon in the industry. Captain John Post  is well liked and respected by his co workers past and present and a favorite among his flight attendants  He received the award of " Outstanding Pilot."  During his illness he received phone calls, emails, and cards from friends and co workers from around the world. Once you met John Post you never forgot him. 

   John wasn't what you would call an extremely "warm & fuzzy" guy...yet anytime you were around him, you sure had your share of fun. Hunting was a favorite at Brother Bob's (especially the card games)...although as Mary would say the only thing he ever came home with was a hangover & a cold from sitting on the porch waiting for the deer to come by.. He was never shy about speaking his mind whether you wanted to hear him or not. He was a staunch conservative & never missed an opportunity to tell Suzy that it was "all those damn liberal teachers" that were the cause of society's problems! Even with all that...you could never get mad at the guy...no matter what craziness came out of his mouth, because he was the first to laugh it off.

   John was most definitely a creature of habit--he would only drink Bud in a can...guzzled coffee all day & all night...watched The Weather Channel & The O'Reilly Factor incessantly...insisted a meal wasn't a meal without meat & potatoes...wore a flannel shirt over a t-shirt even in August...and swore that the NYS Lottery was fixed since all the BIG winners were from NYC or LI (in fact...when the jackpots got REALLY BIG, he'd have Mary call Suzy & tell us to buy him some tickets!). The guy was one of a kind.

Friend, Uncle, Brother, Daddy, Poppy and Husband, there is a place in all of us that is empty now but our hearts will always be full with your love and memory. We love you and will miss you.
