Early Sunday, January 30th, John was called home. John was one of the biggest music lovers, and enjoyed playing with several bands, especially TRAINWRECK. John loved serving as a worship leader for his church and was very passionate in his beliefs and love of Jesus. He was always one to lend a hand and had one of the biggest hearts known to anyone. John led an active life that included a love of scuba, tropical vacations, and all things that included any Pittsburgh sport team, especially the Pens, Pitt football and the Riverhounds. He also loved punching holes in paper at the range. John was preceded in death by his mother Georgean, as well as other family members, and he leaves behind his dad Tim, sister Mindy and brother-in-law Bill Gordon. John also leaves many uncles, aunts, cousins and countless friends. There are no words to describe how much we will all miss him.
