He loved his Savior, Jesus Christ. He loved coal mining. He was currently working at Camilla Met Mining, formally Jesse Creek Mining. He loved to work on cars and fix things no matter what it was. He loved being outside whenever he could. John was a kind man. He was the person who always stepped up to help someone out even if he didn’t know them. He never put himself first.
