John enjoyed the outdoors. Some of the things he enjoyed in his younger days hunting, riding dirt bikes and water skiing. John was an avid Alabama football fan and loved the Crimson Tide. He also liked taking trips to the mountains, going to church, spending time with his family, bass fishing, cross-stitching, and was always up for a good game of canasta…but hated to lose!
