He was an avid fisher and hunter and collected guns. Whether it be a stranger, friend or family you could always count on John to make you laugh with one of his jokes. He touched many lives and it showed through the beeps and countless conversations on the porch while John rocked in his chair. His family meant everything to him even if it meant being the Uber Driver or just spending time with them, he cherished the moments he got to spend with his family. He cherished the time he spent with his grandchildren, they were his pride and joy.
