My Best friend. Indy nut. 300M'er to the max. Was just stunned when Barb called with the news. I hadn't bawled in a long time, but I did that day. And Covid will cause a delay for even a memorial service. Just a bad deal all around.

I hear you...for the world's biggest crier this is the hardest!! I've cried every day but keep hearing John telling me to stop crying and come sit down and have a beer. I share your tears Nick!!

Just want to share. After Carlisle 2018 we took a family vacation a week later to Daytona. We saw this coming back from a miniature golf night and it made me think of John. He was drinking Landshark at the hotel parking lot. I sent him the picture, and he got a good laugh!

That’s awesome Doug!! There was many a time we’d see a margaritaville and would send a picture to John!! Glad I’ll still have these regular reminders of him but sad not to be able to text him!

Here’s a second obituary that represents John so well:
