  1. John was a very kind man with strong values and a headstrong personality you couldn’t help but have respect for. He so obviously loved his family more than anything, always had really good stories to tell, and a great taste in music. I’m so glad I got the chance to meet him. I know he will be sincerely missed but gets to be reunited with his wife whom he loved dearly. Praying for his family and all the people who loved him.
