John was my Dads best friend growing up he was a smartass and kind hearted man! He loved everyone he knew, met and would give the shirt off his back to anyone! He was a selfless person who took his career serious and gave his life keeping people safe. A week before he died we had him over for a BBQ and I don’t think I will ever forget it. He was an amazing person I was lucky to know. I wrote this as I told my 8yr old daughter about him and who he was. There’s a song that reminds me of him because my dad said he loved it. May he Rest In Peace, keep us safe in afterlife and may god have mercy upon the idiot who took my uncles life!
