John loved his family, friends and thoroughbred racing. He was a straight shooter and you knew on which side of the fence you fell. He had no time for the nonsense games. If you wanted to know what John thought, his filter was about 5%. He will be greatly missed by his family and all who called him friend.
The service will be held Monday, September 25 at Kerr Brothers on Main St. Visitation will start at 10:30am and the service will begin at 12:00pm. John will be buried at Lexington Cemetary.
The family wants to particularly thank Hospice of the Blue Grass for their considerable support during John’s journey home. The family requests any donations be made to Hospice of the Blue Grass in John’s memory.
