I knew John for many years. I was so saddened to hear of his passing. He came to many family picnics and holidays. My mom would have been saddened to hear this as well, she passed on Dec. 28, 2019. He was part of our family for many years. He did have a wealth of knowledge and had amazing gardens. I hope he is in a better place now. My love and condolences to his son, and sisters.

Very sorry to read this! I only got to meet him a couple of times, the last at the wake for his Dad. Another cousin I hardly got to know. So very sorry for your loss. Jacqueline Rohrig Strickland

I met John several years ago through my neighbor and friend Ralph Brothers. I always like to John we would often have conversations about hunting and sport shooting. He was definitely a wealth of knowledge about firearms. I miss seeing his car drive by my job everyday and I'm saddened by the fact that we did not become better friends but I will cherish for several years we did have knowing each other. To all his family and friends you have my heartfelt condolences and prayers.

So sorry for the loss of John. The world lost a great sportsman and lover of nature. It's weird not seeing him driving by with the little blue car. RIP John boy
