John enjoyed fishing, playing cards, frisbee golf, eating good food with his family, watching movies, the Vikings, and the Twins. John will be remembered for his outgoing personality; he loved people and always made sure to remember their names. John was a bright light in so many people’s life and he will be dearly missed.
