John was a builder and master craftsman. He accelerated at anything he put his mind to. He enjoyed life and had an adventurous spirit. He was kind hearted, loyal, loving and generous. He had a deep love for his wife, family, friends and his dog Harley, as well as the Dallas Cowboys! He was always willing to lend a helping hand and would go above and beyond to make a person feel welcomed. He was quite an “amigo” man and had many, many friends who, along with his family, can share memories of his beautiful character, outgoing personality and humor. He will be greatly and profoundly missed.
