John was loved by many. He loved to use his green thumb and tending to his garden. John was also known to enjoy yard sale shopping. He was a giving man with a love for family and God. John was always willing to help those in need. He dedicated 34 years of employment to Superior Glass, in Breman, Ohio before taking his retirement in 2009. God has gained another angel.
