I first knew John Moynihan as Molly's dad, since she was in my friend's sister's class. Later, I knew John as the floral designer at Southern Floral.
As I got older, I knew John as one of the good folks who worked with the St. Boniface St. Vincent de Paul Society. He was always a cheerful spirit hauling back all the items that people placed in the boxes in the back of church to the food pantry. He always let us know what we donated was appreciated, and my husband and I (and a few other regulars) always liked to stop and help him get his donations carried wherever he needed them after church.
Our condolences go out to the Moynihan family today. If you want to remember John and help the folks in Carondelet who need it, donate to the St. Vincent de Paul Society at the address listed below.
