John had a lot of love for the Fullmer family and Fullmer farm. He was an avid outdoorsman and loved to hunt deer and turkey. He always enjoyed his coffee time and gossiping with the truck drivers at the Kanona truck stop, and especially enjoyed playing chess with his best friend. He will be missed by all. It will always be remembered when he was asked how he was doing, his answer was always "I'm rotten, mean and miserable" which always made you smile, and we believed that it was always his intent.
