For those of you who knew him from here... John passed last week of complications from a heart condition. After a small beach front ceremony we carried him to one of his favorite places in the Gulf where his ashes were spread by his wife, close family and friends. He began working for the state of Mississippi on April 1, 1998 with the Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks. He transferred to DMR Marine Patrol in July 1999. John was an Army veteran and is survived by his wife and two sons.
