Johney Fred Farley, John, was a member of the DC Air National Guard and attended Shepard University in WV. John was one of the originals here. From the 70’s into the 90’s he performed every job here to the best of his ability. John even rejoined our TNA Family recently to head up our B2B sales. John was always good for advice and a story or 2. John unfortunately passed in 2019. He will and is missed greatly. We miss you John!
Bucky was a constant around our stores for many years. He was a “Good Man”, always good for a story or 2 (or 3). A “jack of all trades” from working in our manufacturing facilities in the 90’s to performing maintenance on all of our stores in the 2000’s, up to his untimely passing. He is missed greatly.
