John Gooding Receives J.A. Piper Award

“I recently returned from the Roofing Industry’s Annual Convention, and I wanted to share with each of you that John Gooding walked away with the JA Piper Award, the Roofing Industry’s highest honor. I know he wouldn’t be too quick to share this information, but I’ll brag for him! John was thanked for his service to the industry as well as his service to the community. He was also recognized for his support and commitment to the love of his life, Mary Gooding, during her journey with Alzheimer’s.

Congratulations Dad! This award is well deserved!”
