Interesting facts about John

John loved exploring new places. We would often hop in the car and find cities we had never been to in each state we had lived. John had a wonderful sense of humor like the time he put a seat belt in our bathtub after our foreign exchange student had fallen out of the tub the night before. He was a hard worker at his job and he was very handy at home

If you could tell John anything today, what would you say?

I miss you so much!! You are my hero and the love of my life!! I miss your strength, wisdom and most of all your love!!

John loved nothing more than

His children, family and, of course our dogs! He loved being busy. Retirement was just another reason to find different things to do.

Favorite place in the world

Being home with me!!

Favorite TV shows
