I also worked with John until he retired, I worked in the IRA Dept with Violet Apalakian until 1996. I would help in the Mailroom when we had mailings for our department.

My deepest sympathies for your loss.

So sorry for the loss of you Husband, and Father. He was such a beautiful persone inside and out, always smiling. I have wonderful memories of Mr Tryder in the Minstral Show days playing his banjo with such pride. He will be greatly missed.

Mrs. Tryder, Allen, John, and the rest of the family, please accept my sincere condolences. I'll always remember Mr. Tryder's awesome Christmas Village. It was so detailed, it seemed to come alive. I also enjoyed his stories and how he enjoyed conversing. He was a very nice man.

I worked with John at Vance Sanders in the mail room in 1963-1964 during the summer months while I was going to college. He was a hard and devoted worker and he always spoke very highly of his wife, Helen. For several years after I left Vance Sanders I returned almost weekly to visit the " boys" and discuss world events and sports. John was a wonderful man and over the years I often wondered what became of him. Saturday

John's banjo music will hang in the air around Broadway forever in my mind, as will the long parking lot conversations we had...he was always a true gentleman, and gentle man. No one ever wore a bow tie better than in peace!
