Craig Woolheater writes: “John Hayes attended the Texas Bigfoot Conference going back to at least 2007 in Jefferson. He and his son James attended Cryptopalooza in Jefferson last fall, spoke with you, and they both also attended the most recent Texas Bigfoot Conference in Fort Worth last month. John was a very nice and friendly man who I enjoyed talking Bigfoot with over the years at the conferences. I will surely miss him at the next one. Godspeed Johnny!”
