I remember Uncle John being the goofy one, incredible sense of humor. So full of life and loved his family.
I remember the family gatherings at the cabin. Sitting on the dock watching all the adults water ski. With Grandpa at the wheel of the boat.
May you R.I.P. in our Lord's house.

We are so sorry to hear about John. I remember the time we went to the comedy club with the other wives and guys. I think there was a time someone got kicked out of the casino. Those were some good times. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Darwin and Debbie Austin
