John Brugger did not believe in sending texts or e-mails to the contractors his company, J&K Welding, worked with. “He would personally visit the contractors and bring them tomatoes and watermelons from a local farmer who he fast became friends with,” says Serena Perazzo, his daughter. “He really cared about everybody, and was very much a workaholic. When he was on vacation, he didn’t enjoy it because he was always thinking about work.”
