John loved to travel. His favorite thing to do was spend time with his family boating and fishing at Bull Shoals Lake. John had a passion for woodworking. He liked to play golf, cards, and games. He was known for pulling pranks and joking. Some would say he was a computer nerd. John could be seen feeding and watching the birds when time allowed. He loved being Papa.
