Very sad to hear of the passing of John Azevedo. Not only was he a great confidant and friend to my father, but saw in him the potential to be a great leader. He gave my father his start in being civil servant. Patterson has lost a great man, a historian of our city and i am honored to have known him, and thankful for him pushing my dad in the direction he did. I learned everything from my father when it came to community work, and my father learned a lot from John. May he rest in peace.
