John was a frequent visitor of Precision Equipment in Farmington. We had met at the Blue Haven in Irondale and became friends immediately. In the short time we knew John we learned he was proud of his 2 children, was looking forward to racing again soon, and he was one of the kindest gentleman we have ever met. Even though our time as friends was short, we were blessed by his friendship. We shared breakfast at Country Mart just a couple weeks before his passing and I just cannot believe he is gone. Rest in peace John - you were fine person! Your friends at Precision Equipment.
