As a dear family friend aptly related about John, “Such a character, such a generous, loving and fun-loving soul who enjoyed all manner of life from poking around inside every one of our mouths to port hopping in the Caribbean, from kicking it in his cow pasture to tuxing it up on the Orient Express. I love how he’d find humor everywhere and in everything, and bring it home bursting with desire to share his stories and create new ones. A spark and sparkle; an instigator, a robust teller of tales and a most adorable, hard-working, spirited goofball.”
