Around John, there was never a dull moment. When he walked into a room, you could feel the energy go up tenfold. He could be outrageous, but never unkind. He was an original South Texas character, a force of nature that I’m sure is felt in heaven now as he was on earth the past 72 years.

On May 28th, my thoughts will be for John and his family. I know how difficult it is. I will regret all my life not having met my cousin and I imagine that John must regret not having been able to visit France. If I come to Texas, I have to manage to deposit a handful of land from the area of origin of his ancestors next to his grave. Rest in peace John

I remember John from High School. And enjoyed his high jinks immensely. There was never a dull moment when he was around. It was so good to reconnect with John these last couple of years on Facebook. From his posts he was a successful man with great love for his family. He will keep things "livened up" in Heaven. Thank you for your service, John.
