Congratulations to Mike Johns Sr., CM, FAICA
Mike was highlighted in the August issue of Monument Builders of North America. The article covered the history of the family business, Johns-Carabelli Company, his monument design expertise, and his life of giving. 

If you ask Mike Johns Sr. about his career, he will tell you that he never worked a day in his life. He loved making monuments so much, he didn’t consider it his occupation—it was his vocation.
