John was the first friend I made when we arrived in Florida almost 40 years ago. He was someone you could call in the middle of the night and he’d say on my way, didn’t matter what you needed. We fished, hunted, camped and celebrated holidays together. To many memories to list but one was playing Pepper at Stavropol waiting for our pizza.
Our families were very close until time and life drifted us apart. I feel as if I have lost a brother. Our prayers to the family.
I’m sure his first word when he entered God’s kingdom was “ Howdy “ .

My heart is heavy as I fight back the tears, but my thoughts are full of all the magnificent memories of how passionate John was teaching others about the outdoors. I miss you buddy and thanks for the memories. Greg Workman
