John was a loving father, son, brother, grandpa, uncle, cousin, and friend. He was an active member of the Pauldingville Masonic Lodge. He was also a member of the Carpenters Union, Laborers Union, and Finishers Union. He was no stranger to hard work and loved every minute of it.
John was very giving and always there for anyone who ever needed him. You always felt safe with him by your side. Times spent with John were always filled with laughter and happiness. He would entertain you for hours with jokes, stories, and magic tricks. He loved music and loved playing his guitars, harmonicas, and pianos. He was a collector of coins, collector of gemstones, and collector of hearts. John took pride in being a simple man with simple needs and the only thing he cherished was love and friendship. His greatest joy was spending time with his family. He left this world too soon and will be missed dearly. When you think of John, think of the times you spent with him, and let that smile break the sadness.
A visitation will be held Wednesday, March 1, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Pitman Funeral Home in Warrenton, with the funeral to follow.  Memorials can be made to Pauldingville Masonic Lodge in care of Pitman Funeral Home.
