He loved taking his daughter, Holly, in the milk truck and on motorcycle poker rides. He was on the Stark County Fair Poultry board. He loved being involved with his children with 4-H animals. John enjoyed his long talks with everyone he was close with and even people he randomly met. He never met a stranger that didn’t become a friend and always had something to talk about. He made everyone’s day. John enjoyed riding his motorcycle with his wife, his children, his grandchildren, and friends. He always had a Mountain Dew in his hand and a pocket on his shirt. John enjoyed talking with all his children; Kristine and him talked on the porch with coffee. John and his daughter, Kaylee, teamed up on Jayne, joked as much as they could, and ate ice cream together.
