    John was a man of honor, truth, and hard work. He was caregiver and our family benefitted from his generosity, kindness, and care giving. John always had a camera, took many pictures, telling the history of our family. He loved fishing, hunting, photography, gardening, being by the Ocean and in the Forest. He was our go to guy on how to make, repair, and knowledgeable on just about any subject. I will remember our brother as a loving and amazing Human Being. John your brother and sisters love and miss you everyday! Sister Cricket aka Marion.
