John was not only a gifted mechanic and handyman, he used his tinkering skills to make special and unusual presents for those around him. He was always aware of others’ wants and needs. John was deeply spiritual in a quiet way. He loved riding his motorcycle especially the special rides in the Big Bend Area with his loving wife. John was a simple but complex man!
