In memory of
Judy, John 44 Aug. 07, 1969 Dec. 03, 2013 The world's greatest man, John Judy, passed away on Dec. 3, 2013. He is known by many and loved by all. He was born in Columbia Station, Ohio, in 1969, to Carl and Kathy Judy. It is a little known fact that this event inspired the song "1969" by Iggy Pop. The town knew this was the best occasion they could ever have happen and quickly disappeared. John was the first of three beautiful children and as the oldest, he took on the role of teaching Billy and TeeJay generosity. The Judy family moved to Ontario and John became the most infamous kid in all of Eastern Oregon/Western Idaho. Stories of his childhood are told throughout many homes as legends. He went off to college in Ashland where he formalized his education in ancient aliens and lover to all women. After college, he set off on his sailboat for a journey to be forever known as "Noah's Ark in reverse" where he endeavored to eat one of every animal. His only regret in life is that he was not able to complete this task. John became known on the sea as a romantic captain and he married many happy couples in international waters. He also was known for his heroic efforts. For example, he came across a beautiful woman in a raft who was in the need of a paddle and he built her one in a matter of minutes. But like all great things, John's time on the sea came to an end. He got a recurring role on a TV cop drama as an ineffective DA and wanted to train more seriously for the Tour de France. He found he yearned for a more settled down life and filled his days with friends, cats, drinks, motorcycle rides, wine yelling at dinosaurs and inappropriate comments. All and all, he had a great life. Perhaps not exactly as stated here but the true importance he has to so many of us can't be put into words. He had a respectable amount of karma on reddit and miles on his Harley. He lived everyday to its fullest and never gave up on anything or anyone. He was a friend to more people than a stadium could hold and was always willing to drop everything for any of us. He was/is the greatest man ever to live and will be missed forever by many. One last thing that is true, he killed a dragon. If you don't believe it, check the plaque at Devil's Point. We love you John, our dragon slayer.
