John was a man with a big-heart, kind spirit, and quick-witted humor. John cared for and served those around him any chance he got. He loved so deeply and was a great man. He jumped at every opportunity he could to crack a joke and make those around him laugh. His laugh was contagious! He loved his son so deeply and was so proud of him, and when his granddaughter was born, his
heart was overflowing. He was an outdoorsman who enjoyed fishing, golfing, working on cars, and his firearms. There wasn’t a thing that John couldn’t do. He was such a hardworking man and his intelligence shined through all he did. John is a son of our Heavenly Father and is now full of joy and peace. John will be deeply missed by his many friends, family, and all those who had the privilege of knowing him.
