John was known as a bubbly, very friendly person. He was a very loyal individual with a great smile, who enjoyed helping others, and was very generous in his ways.

John enjoyed woodworking, crafts, golfing, camping, fishing, bowling and anything that involved the outdoors. He also owned and operated Fundy’s Drive-in from the early 1960’s to mid 1970’s in Manteca. He would travel to visit his family in Arkansas and Missouri.
