John as he was called in his later years was a welder by trade and dubbed the “Iron Dr.” for his master ability to fabricate and weld with a steady hand along with a talent for mirror welding. John was very conscientious and took great pride in his work and where he worked.
In his spare time John enjoyed riding his UTV with the love of his life Denise where they enjoyed each other’s company and beautiful landscape of the Telogia Creek where he was baptized by his good friend and spiritual mentor Darreyl Duggar. John had a green thumb when it came to his plants and garden. He loved to plant seeds and watch them mature. John also had a passion for drawing; a talent most people never knew he possessed but for the ones of us that got to see and own his works, cherished the beauty he put on paper.
