Jon and his wife Betty love to travel and spent time in Leadville and Denver, Colorado as well as the Philippines and Hawaii. They had also traveled extensively to much of the United States and were in Texas for a number of years before returning to Oklahoma to make their home.

Jon Requested that there be no memorial service or dinner after his passing. The family is going along with his wishes. Jon wanted his cremains scattered with Betty’s and the family will see that this is done in the spring.
