His career in sales was highly successful. He was awarded numerous national sales awards.
He was a lifelong member of the Houston area Phi Delta Theta Alumni Association and former member of the Lone Star Board of Directors of the National Hemophilia Foundation.
John loved sports of all kinds. He was an excellent golfer, playing courses all over the world. He participated in competitive water-skiing for many years. He loved fresh-water fishing and acquired a bass boat by the time he was in high school mapping out Lake Livingston. John's friends have described him as a sensitive, charismatic, loyal, and determined person always trying to achieve the best but also trying to help other people achieve as well. He never knew a stranger and remained life-long friends with grade school, high school, college, business associates and his numerous golfing friends. His family acknowledges the lifelong support his friends gave to him.
His family will also remember and miss a very bright, artistic, loving father, son, and brother, who could create magic with his smile, wit, and storytelling.
One of John's loves was serving as a Camp Counselor for ten years for Camp Ailihpomeh (Hemophilia spelled backwards). He spent a week each summer in Meridien, TX as counselor to ten to eleven year old boys with blood disorders. He enjoyed his time with the boys and went armed with ghost stories each year.
