John was raised a farmer and after dedicating much of his life to raising his three children, he became a Certified Master Gardener - a life's hobby and passion.

John enjoyed being outside - marveling at the beauty of nature. He was a 10-year 4-H member and served as a 4-H leader for more than five years.
