He had a great smile that would light up any room and a warm personality that made him instantly likable. He had a heart full of love and cared deeply for those around him. John's kindheartedness extended far beyond words. If someone needed help or support, you could count on John to be there, whether it was an old friend or a stranger.

His hobbies included fishing, riding motorcycles, and working on old cars and trucks. These passions were shared with his family and friends throughout his life.
