The one thing we know about John is how much he loved Sandy. His world revolved around her. He would do anything for her. His world also revolved around his beautiful daughter, Tracy and his loving grandsons, Hayden and Jackson. We had a wonderful time visiting Sandy (who was a classmate and dear friend from Gen. HH Arnold High in Germany). Alan had such fun with John when they went gambling and Alan won $90.00 and John won $700.00 !! We both enjoyed our night out at Medievil Times with them.

John was a kind, sensitive, giving, one of a kind man who was loved by many and won't be forgotten.

We are so sorry for your loss! John was married to our high school classmate Sandy and he has been a loved and special member of our class for over 35 years. He came to reunions from Denver to Charleston and his presence was always cherished! He gave much more than he received while helping, keeping us laughing, donating time and money, taking pictures and just being the wonderful person he was to ALL!!! We were all blessed to have had John in our lives!
