John was known as “Red” to those that loved him. A quiet gentle soul that always let you know what he was thinking when the time was right. He had a very sentimental heart, loved being outdoors and all animals. His wife of 54 years was the light of his life. He always said he got the best when he got her. He was a devoted husband and father and loved when his little “chitlens” grandchildren were with him.
