He enjoyed being outside doing yardwork and gardening and also working on projects in his shop. John also enjoyed traveling with his wife Shirley to many different places around the country. As a young boy, John accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior. He loved the Lord and it showed in the kindness and generosity he showed to others.
