I think of John a lot! Me and him were good friends growing up . We listened to Lynard Skynard and the Eagles a lot together while taking all the back roads, hunting rabbits, and what ever else we saw! I will always have some of my best growing up memories with him.I know he was a good man, dad, husband and friend. The family is in our prayers!
Thank you for sharing some of your memories of him John. He always listened to those bands throughout my childhood- we even found an old , scratched up lynard skynard CD jammed in his truck player a few days ago.
My condolences to your family. I know you’ll will miss him so much but GOD needed him more.
