Shoot he was a good friend------we all will miss him on this Forum

the Bulldog would spank you in a second
we traveled a lot of times together --he was a Hoot



He came and picked me up at Ft Bragg in 04 so I could watch the Races at Maxton.
I was in medical hold after Afganastian war and he Ran that a rabbit convertible to get me..lots of fun. When we went to the Golden Trough to eat he made me sit a long was away because I was and Always are too loud--He could put out the 1 liners and take the pressure joking Too.......Miss you John "bulldog" Finn--glad you don't hurt any more

I remember the help John gave me when I bought my FC... Very helpful but you better pay attention! John definitely will be missed and remembered. God bless John!

Somewhere out there, there is a picture of John and Patticake at one of the RIV rallies. I think it was in '04 or '05. He was wearing a blonde wig that matched Patticake's hair. This was a formal dinner, in which you where supposed to wear a suit. We (Patticake & I) were dressed in the formal Lonestar bird's uniform. Dark slacks and a Texas flag shirt, with John in his coveralls. We had a good laugh at that. I think that Randy has a copy of that.

A toast to John Finn, rest his soul: He had a beautiful gift for sharing and belonging. If everyone had that, we’d need a lot less. Go with God, old son.
