Always greeting everyone with a smile, John Halford had a genuine zest for life and an infectious personality. John was quick to put others before himself and was always ready to help family and friends with any tasks, big or small. John particularly loved tinkering with and fixing things and he was the go-to guy for any power equipment repairs or home improvement needs.
John enjoyed volunteering his time at the annual St. Patrick’s Senior Center dinner hosted by the family, and he will always be remembered as one of the official mashed potato makers.
John loved learning new things and was an avid Jeopardy watcher. He also loved scouring the Readers Digest for the perfect joke to share with the family.
John had an adventurous spirit—he was always willing to jump in the car for a road trip, and he had many stories from his travels to the west coast with his Grandpa McIntyre. John was always on the lookout for interesting things and enjoyed searching locally for treasures.
To his core John was a Detroit sports fan and you could always count on him for a download of the score and a play by play of the game of the day.
John Halford will always be remembered for his infectious laugh, the mischievous twinkle in his eyes, and his devotion to his friends and family. He will be missed by all who knew him.
“To know John is to know love.”
