We shared a hunt camp in Georgia with John for 10 years. Our prevailing memories of John are his beautiful smile, friendly nature, quick wit, his love of friends and the woods. Though we haven’t seen John since those days, his passing brings us much sadness. His smile truly brightened our days.

Heartfelt condolences to his family.
