Papa John was our neighbor for 26 years. A sweet man who had a fiery side for sure! We’ve had lots of great memories from New Years Eve to Florida / Georgia parties and barbecues. I’ll miss hearing you call me youngin every time you see me or stop by from your mailbox runs, but I know there was a huge celebration welcoming you home and Cindy was first in line💕. You will be missed

John was a faithful member of the Jax Vets, a group of Veterans who meet once a week in Jax Beach for fellowship, friendship, and to share stories about their time in Service. John had some great stories. They left no doubt that he was a patriot. May the Lord watch over his family and may he Rest In Peace.
