John was an amazing part of my younger years. So many good memories of fishing off of Spanish Banks and Jericho beach! John taught me patience.
I would develop a birds nest in my line and he would carefully unravel it for me. We would anchor by Siwash Rock before the sea wall was there to get shellfish for bait. He introduced me to smelt fishing at Jericho beach. He would send me home with part or all of the catch to clean and fry.
We hiked to Deaks lake to fish. It was always fun and I am so greatful he invited me to spend time with him and his family.
To Ruth, Rene, Ursula and Sandra- my thoughts are with you.
