John was a wonderful grandpa, he always wore straw hats outside and was tinkering with his cars and trucks. He was gruff sometimes, but he never knew a stranger. I loved waking up at their house and hearing Grandpa singing gospel songs out of key. Grandpa was my best friend and I loved him dearly. I drove his truck for many years after he passed and I always pictured his papers and oily rags laying around in there. That was grandpa. Grandpa had Grandma fix him "jowl" bacon and eggs and gravy every morning for breakfast. He was reserved and always fought with Clara over his television and her stereo. I used to laugh because they would each turn theirs up so high it would make you deaf, to drown out the other. Grandma ultimately won and he gave up his television when they moved to Fowler. I miss you grandpa.
