John will be missed greatly by the Central PA Circus Model Builders group. John displayed his beautiful, highly detailed hand made circus model, at the York Fair. John and his wife Betty, worked every day at our circus model displays at the York Fair for ten years! John also graciously ushered every show for the real Circus that performed during the York Fair. One year Betty counted over 29,000 spectators that enjoyed viewing our circus model display at the York Fair.
