For those of you who knew John, you spent a lot of time talking with him. You knew he loved to BBQ, have a beer or two, joke around and laughed a lot. He could carry a conversation with anybody about anything. He loved his simple life at his home with Big Dog. He spent many days sitting outside at his picnic table watching the weather patterns and listening to the sounds of nature. He occupied his days doing what he loved to do.
A Celebration of Life with family and friends will be held Feb. 16, in Cypress, Tx. Please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org for more info. We will miss your witty puns, jokes, laughter, and your beautiful loving baby blue eyes. Gig'em John, until we see each other again! Whoop!
