John, known to many as “Johnny” or “Batman,” was a gentle, caring, and kind man that never knew a stranger. He loved everyone and was a hard worker who worked for Prime Time in Wakarusa for many years as a receiver. John enjoyed spending time with his family, especially when they would cookout together on beautiful summer days. In his spare time, he could be found watching movies with his loving wife; collecting swords; and cheering on the Miami Dolphins. John will be greatly missed by all who knew him and by his loving family.
