John was born April 22, 1945, in Carlsbad, New Mexico. John worked hard, long hours in concrete construction in the local area most of his life. He played just as hard as he worked and loved to laugh. He loved his family and always asked how everyone was doing if you ever ran into him somewhere or stopped by. The smile and laughter will be missed.
