If you were a friend of John’s you were a friend for life.

John was always looking to have a good time and wanted everyone else to have a good time as well.

John loved to entertain people whether at the lake cabin or at his home.

He was the most giving person I know.

John and I became known as the Bahama Mama Boys, this was a drink we discovered on a cruise in 1999.

We will always have special memories provided by John.

He loved to look at the stars while at the lake pointing out constellations with a flashlight to everyone.

His friends were like family and he will be missed by all.

The family would like to thank Horizon Hospice for their loving care and support.
