He was always proud to point out projects he had worked on.

He enjoyed fishing, playing his guitar (John Mellencamp's "Pink Houses" was always a favorite), gardening in his extensive vegetable and flower gardens, camping, refinishing old furniture, and was an avid New England Patriots fan.

John loved spending time with family and was always happiest when everyone was together; at holidays, summer BBQs, gatherings, and even surprise pop-in visits.

John was outgoing, funny, and loved a good joke. He had a gift for making everyone he met feel like an old friend.

He was an inspiration and will be missed.
