John was trained and specialized in Electronic Security Systems. Music was a big part
of his life. He appreciated a game of cards, a good joke/prank or just sitting under the
stars with the radio playing.

and a true friend. Validation was that kids and dogs loved him too.
John carried the loss of his parents, business partner Mike, friends Vern, Toeman, PB and
others and still would say “It’ll all work out”.
Safe travels John, we miss you already.
