John was an avid CW and DX operator. He also loved the TN SSB & CW Traffic Nets and a CW rag chew or two in the evenings. Usually on a bug.
He also loved Ten Tec gear and supporting his local Petersburg church which he called the "taber-nackle". He even printed the bulltins each week for the large crowd of about 20 folks.
He would always drive out and visit my family when we were in the southern TN area in our motorcoachand was always amazed at our deaf cat that rode on the dash of the coach as we traveled.
We had a standing appointment each year as I would always pick him upon my wayto the Huntsville AL hamfest.
If I remember corretly, he should beon the DXCC Honor Roll. He had worked them all throughout the years, even a lot of the deleted countries.
John was a DX and CW mentor for me and also one of the kindest men I've ever known. I'm considerably younger, so took many nights of John's time talking about different bugs and the art of taming them.
