John grew from this very happy boy to become a joyous, helpful man. Just look at that face. While adventuring through life, John also had a few misadventures like shutting his fat little hiney in a desk drawer, ironing his baby-fat belly, and more. He also had a sailing mis-hap in which his date threw his shoes into the water. What she didn't know was that the keys to the car and John's glasses were in those shoes. He wasn't so happy then, but overall - John seemed to smile more than he was down. He helped more than he took. He was a great guy who will be deeply missed.
