I met John at one of those winery builds. I grew up in the towns he was living in the last few years. John was a really good guy. Someone you’d like to sit down and have a brew or soda pop and just talk. Only BTer I’ve ever met. (I did not kill him!) His site had a great view of the Yamhill valley. Looking west it is my favorite scenery of the area. When he would post pictures of the elk or deer on his daughters property I always got a bit nostalgic. I drove all over that area in my young days working for a farmer.
I loved his story about the concrete truck turning over because (driver) did not know physics. I knew the corner it happened on. It was just downhill from the winery build i met him.
John was a good man.
