John was an accomplished mechanic, bringing to life old Volkswagens, Chevrolets and even aircraft. He graduated from college with a degree in Aviation Maintenance as was licensed as an FAA Airframe and Power Mechanic. His true gift was his empathy and compassion for the people that had left this world for a better place.

Regardless of rain or shine, he was going to be there for every family, every time!

John was a man of solid character and trusted by all who knew him. He united with the Ashbury Church and as an accomplished drummer from his high school days, giving praise and glory with the clash of his cymbals (Psalm 150:4-6) and the beat of his drum to his Lord.
He was also a big part of the Wichita Fellowship Club (http://www.wichitafellowship.org/101club.htm) and loved to visit the 101 Club to fish.
Having been a faithful Christian man Jesus said, "Be thou faithful unto death and I will give Thee a crown."
