John (Jack) Wadman was born in Bar Haven in 1939. He is married to Betty. Jack worked on the boats in his younger years and later worked odd jobs around. He loves trouting and any kind of fish. He was a wonderful singer and guitar player. While he don't do much with it these days, when he does, it still sounds wonderful.
