John first and foremost loved his family. He was a loving husband, father and grandfather. He was a loyal friend who would do anything for anyone. He would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. He was a spiritual man who found his solace with God in nature. John was an outdoorsman who loved hunting, fishing, his horses and his friends. He even took up team roping at the age of 60. John and his horse Shamu were the heelers of the team.
