John had an endless love of learning and enjoyed sharing his knowledge with all. From an early age, he found passions in model trains, photography, music, reading, and computers.
We can use many words to describe John – he was creative, intelligent, clever, inventive, curious. Even though sometimes a contrarian, John had a big heart and loved to share knowledge and fun with his family through tinkering on inventions, photography, playing music, and learning new things. John was always ready for a good conversation over any topic.
John’s greatest gifts to all of us were his two sons who inherited the best parts of him.
