John was a WWII veteran who served his country in the South Pacific. He was an avid hunter, trapper, fisherman, and gardener. You were always welcome at his home where he always had a pot of coffee on. He raised extra vegetables so he could take some to the ladies at the bank and give to neighbors and friends. He never needed anything because he was happy with what he had. He was a family man: the most important thing to him was family. He is gone to the lease.
