  1. Just a small memory, but one that has stayed with me of Mr Musick. About 37 years ago, when I was staying with my sister and her husband, Bob Musick, and had just been hired as temporary help at Weirton Steel, John learned that I would be in the same locker room as him. He made a point to meet me as I was coming on my shift to give me a “board” to stand on when I dressed. It was apparent why this was needed unless you wanted to ruin your street clothes from the soot that was everywhere. It may seem a small thing, but my experience with him and Bob showed them to be good and certainly generous people.
