John loved to travel, even better if he could do that traveling on his Spyder Motorcycle. One such journey took John and Darlean to the Sturgis Motor Cycle Rally in South Dakota. As much as he loved to travel he also enjoyed his home, spending time with his family, and his nine Golden Retrievers. He loved to BBQ, take his family and friends to the lake in his ski boat for a day of fun on the water.
