John loved spending time at his family's cottage on Cuba Lake, fishing and taking boat rides. He enjoyed early morning rounds of golf with his sons. He adored his wife and children and was the most wonderful, fun grandfather. John was a lifelong fan of the Boston Celtics, Red Sox and Buffalo Bills (and will be rooting for them in next year's Super Bowl). He will be remembered for his sarcastic sense of humor and firm handshake. At the family's request, all guests are required to wear face masks.
