Remembering fun times in our youth. Johnny had such joy when his sons were born, and as they grew up. I know they were the accomplishment in his life he was the most proud of. He showed kindness to his extended family, especially his Aunt Tessie, whom he sat with in her last hours. May the peace of God be with him and his family, especially Nicholas and Dylan. Much love, cousin Sue Ann.

John always enjoyed watching his boys sporting events and I remember him being very involved in Boy Scouts when Nicholas was a scout.
I also remember all sorts of shenanigans when we were teenagers, Sue Ann and I liked hanging out with her older cousin John!
