So sorry to hear about John. We enjoyed spending time years ago at Westgate and spending time in his shop. He was an awesome guy and no... I don't have his fire proof jacket lol. Take care to all.

Rest in peace Uncle John. You will be greatly missed by all that loved and knew you. I will always remember your sense of humor and you playing jokes on me when I was younger. I know you are up there planning some practical jokes to let us know you are still with us and watching over us. My thoughts and prayers are with Aunt Susie and family at this trying time. "Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us everyday." Love Kevin Develder and family.
