Some of his greatest joy came from his children and grandchildren.

He loved Quill Hill and fishing. He enjoyed going to Christian concerts, dance recitals, and any of the children’s events. He enjoyed going to living museums and history. He volunteered as a JV basketball coach for Richmond.  He worked in children’s ministry with his late wife Stephanie as well as his wife Angie. He enjoyed fires with family and friends at the fire pit outback of his home and watch the deer under the apple-tree. He dreamt of all the yard work projects he wanted to do as he loved it. He loved going on date nights, out to eat, camping, and adventures as well as going dancing at Mixers in Sabattus on Sunday evening retro nights with his wife.

He took an active role in the lives of his children and grandchildren. When he was a young boy, he was involved in youth group, Sunday school, cub scouts, little league, and Richmond youth group.

John was never scared to take on new opportunities and did everything with honesty and integrity. He had very strong values and was well liked by everyone, mostly due to his positive energy. John had incredible patience, and always made time to help others. He would say we live for others. He had a quirky but great sense of humor. His legacy will carry on forever reminding us that we control our attitudes. We choose to live a life of meaningful acts of love and service, like Christ modeled for us.
