Dad (Fred Brandenburg) has told me the story several times about John Fehir helping him get around when he could hardly walk. He also talked about the “mud hole” that they made for swimming and how he couldn’t swim but he could hold his breathe so He would hang on to John’s shorts and John would swim all around with him. They had a “club,” you had to pay 5 sacs (That they filled with sand/dirt to build the dam) to enter the “mud hole”. It was there on the hill following the creak from the park up.

Every morning at the railroad, you could see him arrive. He stood 6 foot 1, weighed 245. Kind of broad at the shoulders, with great big hands. And people know that John is a very "Fehir" man. Big John Big John Big Bad John Big John Everyone knew where John called home. He was never ever never left all alone. His grandkids and children always were there. And when he spoke to you, you knew he really cared. Somebody said he loved to hunt and fish. He would bring it all home ; Grandma would prepare the dish. You see John was a Christian with nothing to fear. It was Gods time to take him away from here. Big John Big John Big Bad John Big John John loved his wife, family, and country too. Serving in the army during World War II. Many trips to the camp we will never forget. Liked to watch John Wayne on his TV set. He was a "Mans Man" many knew well. Now Jesus has prepared a new place for him to dwell. Big John Big John Big Bad John Big John Now all the memories we will always have, Those that trust in Jesus will see you again. Now there in heaven John Sings: "Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?" In Heaven he is alive and well, Big Bad John Big John Thank You Jesus!
