Jon Michael’s best times were spent hog hunting, deer hunting and spending time with his family and friends; as well as the many memories made at the hunting lease in Post. From an early age, he spent many hours in the arena on the back of a horse, learning to master his love of horses and team roping competitions with his family. To know him was to love him. His infectious smile and laugh will be a memory treasured by all who knew and loved him. Jon Michael was saved and baptized at a young age at River Crossing Cowboy Church when church services were still being held at the Nash Arena.
