What can I say about John, he lived his life his way. He could make you laugh for hours. He was one crazy guy. Oh and the stories, there are so many. He made friends wherever he went. He would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. He was very mischievous at a very early age, like when he was born, LoL. He was a hard worker, loved to operate heavy equipment, fish, camping, two steppin, loved to balloon Loved cooking for family and friends on his disco. We all know he loved chasing women and bull shitting.
