    My thoughts and prayers are with the Bertino family. I have lots of memories of (papa John) from when I was a kid. I grew up with Alicia and my dad and John would work St. Ann’s spaghetti dinners together. He was so funny!

    My condolences. I remember the good times with your parents, the Harris’ and my mom and dad. Those days at the “cabin” on the river. Take care.

    See you at the range my friend,
    Jim Pavlik

    Bertino family,
    Our lives have been intertwined from almost the beginning. Your Dad was my Father Joey Calabria’s best friend growing up. He worked fro my grandfather CJ at the truck terminal. He knew my mom growing up. Heck, he knew me before I was even born!!!
    I babysat all of you many times. Your parents would come to Colorado with mine to visit. What a great time we all had!
    Your Dad had a story for everything. He was an amazing man. He was a plethora of information of all things!
    I don’t think there was a situation where he didn’t have a story to share!!
    I will remember him with a smile on my face and in my heart.
