He was a proud supporter of his community; volunteering his time to the Round Valley Police Department, White Mountain Shooters Association and the Round Valley Community Garden; supporting the local gardeners. John spent his free time fishing and building amazing crafts for his loving wife. The community he served was better from all of his contributions and commitment he had to his friends and neighbors.
