John was passionate about the great outdoors and the Rocky Mountains. He could often be found fly fishing, hiking, cross country skiing, camping with his family and friends, vacationing with his brother Dennis at Rockies training in Arizona or watching the Broncos practice in Denver. John had a long lasting love with cooking. His food was always a family favorite at backyard BBQs, holiday parties, or at casual gatherings with friends and family.

He led a life well lived, filled with family, love and generosity. After a brief, hard battle with pancreatic cancer, John passed away peacefully on Sept. 14 in Vail, CO. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
