John was a smart, witty, creative, and cool dude who was liked by everyone who knew him. He was always there to help someone in need, especially animals. John loved nature, and would never hurt any living creature. He loved relaxing by a nice pool, or white beach wearing a wide brimmed hat, and smoking a cigar & listening to music. He was a talented artist, and has drawn some very nice religious themed pictures for his dear friend, Father Tim McIntire from DeSales University in Pennsylvania. He loved to read, especially Randy Wayne White novels, and Ann Rule books. He also loved to read about WWII, and any old rocker who has had a biography written about them. He loved sports, and rooted for all the local teams in Tampa Bay. He is missed, and will always be missed, but in our hearts forever.
