“John was raised in Norman, Oklahoma, playing baseball in high school and graduating from the University of Oklahoma. He raised his family in Norman. He was an avid OU football fan and loved the Thunder and the Yankees too. He enjoyed spending time with his family, playing cards and telling funny stories of the glory days. John was an excellent golfer and spent his retirement traveling with his wife and playing on golf courses all over the country. John passed away after a brief battle with cancer, leaving his family to feel an enormous loss. John and his wife have always discussed wanting to donate their bodies to science. When John passed, it was the best decision for the family to follow his wishes. This would allow there to be some sort of good to come out of something so terrible.” – Jackie G.
