Lil John, as he was affectionately known to the family, was a loving and soft spoken young man that love to travel with his father during the summer as his Dad drove across country to see the world in his eighteen (18) wheeler truck. You could often find Lil John anxiously awaiting his Dad’s arrival, and jumping for joy when he heard the tooting of his father’s truck horn as he was approaching his home. John was a very artistic child that had an eye for creating beautiful pieces of artwork that he would let do his talking for him. One of his other hobbies as a child was putting together old school model cars from scratch, as he got older he soon put that talent to good use and you could often find him tinkering with cars in the front of his mother’s home to bring those old school cars to life.
