I met John only about three years ago when I joined the local Eagles club. I was lucky enough to become friends with him and other members that invited me to golf with them Sunday mornings. What a great time!!!! John would always Say don’t let the game get you worked up,look at it as a beautiful walk in the country! That will stick with me for the rest of my life!! I’m so sorry to Johns family for their loss. We will all miss him greatly. Bob W
