He loved working in his garden, building rockeries and water features, reading, bible study, being a steward for his church, playing bocce ball, monthly breakfasts with his cousins, and going to church. John loved shamrock shakes, he enjoyed football, baseball, basketball, high-school and college teams, and of course, the Seahawks. John will be dearly missed.
