John loved hunting and fishing with a passion, something that started as a young boy with his father and grandfather. He carried those passions on with his son, nephews, daughter and granddaughter. Many times Mike, age 8 or 9, would call “Hey John, wanna go fishing?” As a toddler he took Melissa fishing in the playpen. He took Cassie fishing when she caught her first fish. What a proud Papa when he snapped that photo. Opening day of dove season was always meeting up with Marshall, Mike, Randy or Eddie and showing up at dad’s. We lived our lives by hunting and fishing seasons.
John will be greatly missed.
