When you live life like John did for 93 years, 5 months and 2+ days you earn a whole lot of respect! As one person put it, Hopland lost a third generation farmer and a Hopland icon on April 26, 2017, we cant think of words strong enough to describe him, but we will say if there is a heaven they are about to learn how to farm and live off the land there.
John is survived by his children, Charles Woolley (Betty), Karen Stratman (David), John Poor Jr. (Susan), Kathleen McWilliams (Robert), Willa Lyle, 14 grandchildren, 22 great grandchildren, 2 great great grandchildren and 1 nephew.
