From the time he was about 5 years old, he went salmon fishing and crabbing with his dad, and that became a lifelong venture for him. He won numerous salmon derby's throughout the Puget Sound area. He is listed in the State book of records for catching the largest Petrale Sole (7lbs., 9oz.) on June 11, 1980. His best fishing buddies Bob Coale, Jim Miller, and Dave Toon will always be in our hearts. John was "The Fishing Man".

At his request there will be no services. He will be laid to rest at Crown Hill Cemetery in Ballard. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Hospice of Kitsap County.
