John had the uncanny ability to carve a spot in so many peoples lives through his friendships, unselfish actions, honesty and great moral fibers that made him the man we had all come to love.
John reunites with his beloved Golden Retriever, Simba, and recaptures the glory of Algerine Hill where we can all be certain he is sighting in on a 12-point buck.
John is also survived by his sister Linda and husband Chris Reller of South Carolina; his brother, Mike and his wife, Bonnie and children of New York; Aunt Anna of New York; several nieces, nephews, cousins and close friends.
