John was a free spirit who loved animals, especially his dog, Hunter. When he was younger, John's favorite times included outings with his mom, dad and Grandpa and Grandma Millyard in Henefer, Utah, where he could fish, hunt and enjoy the outdoors that he loved. John also found pleasure in creating and building birdhouses.
John had many struggles in his life but always kept a positive outlook. His beautiful big grin, we will always love and remember. John could light up a room with his smile! John had a big heart and always wanted to help anyone in need.
