John loved the Great Outdoors, spending memorable summers as a young man at Camp Hayo-Went-Ha in Northern Michigan and fishing and hunting with his father. He enjoyed camping in Yosemite, rock climbing at Joshua Tree National Park, and running on the beach, where he met his partner, Audrey.

John and Audrey lived in Pacifica for over 30 years, enjoying the balmy Mediterranean weather, beautiful coastal beaches and their local Noe Valley neighborhood vibe.

John was a kind soul, a dreamer and adventurer, who faithfully cared for his beloved Audrey and happily gave of his time and abilities to help anyone in need.
