He was the most devoted fan of the Oklahoma University Sooners football program, never missing a broadcast while wearing his OU sweatshirt. He loved the Denver Broncos most of the time. Camping with his family in the beautiful areas of Colorado was a great love. Taking trips on his BMW 1200 motorcycle was another one of the many adventures John enjoyed through out his life. His greatest joy was telling jokes and stories friends and family members who have passed on. He loved spending time with his children and Kat.
John will be dearly missed by many life long friends but mostly by his beloved family.
