I am so sorry to hear of this news. I have fond memories of hanging out with John and Dan Mielcarek, good times at the Benzow basement, playing basketball and other assorted activities. The Benzow family was a big part of St. Stan's. My condolences to all of the family, and to Dan. May John rest in peace.
