3 posts in this topic

Just heard this news and thought I would share with the community 

 

Local to the Royal River area 

I only met John a few times OTW

great guy, fine fishermen

 

nearly always out earlier than you OTW

 

caught more fish than you 

 

I woukd always notice the Lund cruising by with old glory always flying out back 

he always looked so stoic and focused 

 

and one thing I certainly admired and was jealous of is that he often fished with his wife, sharing the time OTW 

 

RIP good man

I will miss John dearly.  I fished along side him in the Royal for many years.  Shared time at many CCA meetings and a few Cape Cod expeditions.  He was kind enough to share a photo montage of my father landing his first striper at the Cape upon reading his obituary a few years ago.  His funeral is tomorrow at 2pm at First Parish Unitarian Church, 425 Congress St., Portland Maine.

Didn't know him, but sounds like he was living the dream and shared a love of the outdoors as do most of us...RIP John....
