John graduated from Amelia County High School. He was very skillful, and adventured into many careers. He worked as a carpenter, building constructor, and sanitation engineer most of his life.
One of John’s favorite passions was to hunt. He would spend most of his Saturday’s with family and friends during hunting season. Another activity that he enjoyed was fishing. He loved to share his passions with his only son.
John was best noted for his humor. He was an optimistic, friendly family man. John would always leave friends with smiles and laughter when he indulged them with one of his tales or experiences.
