John was a wonderful family man. A man of honor and integrity. Anyone who knew him, knew that his family was the most important aspect of his entire life. He was so incredibly proud of his family. He loved his grandchildren deeply and they were the light of his world. He always enjoyed family functions but also enjoyed being on the water catching fish whenever he had the opportunity. He was never a needy man. Instead, he enjoyed the simple joys of life, a good cup of coffee and good conversation. His children will forever be indebted to this extraordinary man for the legacy that he has left us.
