Many stories about John’s professionalism, good nature and attention to detail have been going around ASM today. One ASM employee told of how on his very first day John was found by his partner to be checking the ambulance’s oil. Those in the business know that’s above and beyond and thoroughly professional.

John was held in high regard by the ASM family and he will be missed. Share a story about John by clicking “Leave a reply” below.

For ASM employees:

As you may have heard, Hartford Police Officer John Marvin was killed in a motor vehicle accident early today. Many of you may have known John as he worked for ASM from October 2008 through December 2009.

We will be collecting cash donations to help his family with expenses at this tragic time.

If you wish to contribute, there will be a jar at the Holiday Party tomorrow evening. In addition, I have an envelope in my office. All money collected will be sent directly to his family.
