He loved watching and playing baseball and in 1966 played on the National Little League All Star team. John was an excellent pool player and played in the international pool tournament in Las Vegas several years. He also could play a mean saxophone; he was a member of the Theodore high school band and in the mid 1960's played in a local band. But most of all, he was an avid Alabama Football fan; he never missed a chance to watch or go to a game and to shout, ROLL TIDE!!!!
