UNSUNG HEROES 2013: John Dickess

Published 10:07am Wednesday, February 27, 2013

I watched the old Papa John’s building fill up with bikes this past Christmas and thought it was a great and caring thing for John Dickess to take his time to do the bike giveaway for the children of this county.

Mr. Dickess is a nice person and I hope he has a bigger and better bike giveaway this Christmas.

    A man ‘Truly Blessed of the Lord’..!!
    This man and his automotive repair group have
    gone way above and beyond what is expected of
    regular / normal citizens….

    Mr. John deserves to be recognized as both the
    business and citizen of the year in the City of Ironton..!!

    God Bless you and yours sir..!!
