Grandpa(John) was an amazing grandfather that loved us all. He enjoyed hunting and fishing but was really good at fixing things like when my bike was broken he'd fix it.when he came to live with us for a while he would do things around the house because he liked to make us happy,there was a point where my dad asked him to stop because he was worried because he did so much. Once he came to see my tennis and he was so pleased with it that he'd talk to me about a lot and always try and bring it up.I was as proud of him as he was of me,I will never forget him Joey
