 John was raised at the end of Bench Road by wonderful parents who taught him the value of hard work and great fun on a farm. He knew when it was time to work and when it was time to play. He was an avid pheasant hunter and enjoyed camping when he could. The biggest thing for John was spending time with family, whether they were camping or just spending time together. A highlight of his life was going moose hunting in Canada with his sons and brother.
