He worked as a lineman and worked with Fiber optics for AT&T for many years. In his free time he loved to fish, target practice and watch TV Westerns.  John enjoyed the holidays. His favorite holidays were Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving and any holiday he could blow stuff up, like 4th of July, birthdays and New Year’s Eve, ect.

John tolerated Linda’s cats, but through the years he always had a dog. They were true friends to him and when they would pass he would mourn. Linda has his border collie Sadie, she will truly miss him.

He lived in Arlington TX, from the age of two until he was thirty. John moved to Lawrence, KS in 1994, fell in love with Kansas, and made it his forever home. Linda has found comfort in the fact that John will rest in peace in the grave spaces he picked out and bought at Clinton Cemetery sixteen years ago.

From Glen Hazelwood...

Big John, you’ve been a great friend and neighbor. The few years I’ve known you were far too short. Life will be harder now without your advice and help. Wanda has said many times, since you went to the hospital a week ago, how she misses your morning phone calls. I do too, my friend.
