I sadly report that Mr.John Kasten is being taken off life support due to his medical condition. It is being reported to boro staff that his last rites were administered this morning also. The entire Bangor boro staffs thoughts and prayers are with his dear wife Karin at this time. Words fail me as I have personally lost a confidant and very good friend and adviser and teacher. A true gentleman and expert business manager..he will be greatly missed by all of us here in the Bangor community. Adieu John..
