The recipient of several awards over the years, John was truly beloved by both the staff and the residents of Glen Oak Towers alike. Every one that knew John could tell he was a real jokester and loved comedy. He had a laid-back style and had the coolest, most infectious grin. John was a momma’s boy that took care of all needs around her home. He loved to fish and grill and was an excellent cook.
