John A. Mucci was a dedicated law professional who never lost his positive attitude. Well liked by his co-workers as well as the public, he made the extra effort to be helpful to everyone. His laugh was infectious and his smile was one of those things we came to take for granted.
My condolences to the family…he was one of the good ones, and he will be sorely missed!
