    • According to Ron Howell, John was known as "Duco" because of his auto paint shop, where duco paint was sprayed. He did cars and buses for Johnsons Blue Motors. The paint shop was across from the Grand Hotel, Duco was too frequently in the bar and was usually high on a mixture of alcohol and paint fumes.
