Bleckley Man Finds Happiness in Hobbies

Bleckley Man Finds Happiness in Hobbies

John Crowe, 42, stands in his workshop area in his family home in Cochran, and points out different pieces of equipment. “I use that for my wood working.” “That is for the cars.” “That is for the metalwork.” “That is for the photography.”

Crowe, who is the operations manager at Dublin GM/Nissan in Dublin, Georgia, said, “I am one of those types of people who just likes to learn.”

His bookshelves are full of 'how-to' books. “I don't read any book that is not going to teach me something, except the Bible, and well, that teaches us things too.”

Crowe is very easy-going, flexible and relaxed.
