John looked forward to family gatherings where he was able to enjoy interacting with all his relatives. He was at his happiest during those times. He was gifted at writing and his interest in the fantasy genre led him to make his goal in life to write a fantasy book before his 30th birthday. He loved his family and his numerous friends and was completely loyal to them. Two of his very special friends are Aaron McLemore and Chase Tindell. John had recently developed a love of music and was working with another friend to create some music of his own.
