Dedication of Memorial to Maynard B. Johnson
On October 16th, we had the privilege of attending a dedication for a memorial to Maynard Johnson, who had passed away July 16, 2017, at the age of 95. Maynard was one of the original founders of the Airlake Industrial Park, a mentor, and a good friend. It was an honor to be able to attend (and for our owner Jack Matasosky to be able to say a few words at) the dedication ceremony.
The location of the memorial is at Pioneer Plaza, Holyoke Avenue and 208th Street, Lakeville, MN 55044
