He served in the United States Navy. He was a marine mechanic, he served during the Vietnam War.

His family meant more to him than anything else in the world. Anyone who knew John knew that he was the most loving spouse, father, and PaPa that a family could ask for. His knowledge and guidance were the foundation of his family. Early in life, John learned the importance of hard work and he instilled that same work ethic in us. He taught us the importance of family, hard work and doing what is right. John worked tirelessly to ensure that his family had everything they needed. He faced every challenge in life with admirable strength and courage.

We mourn the loss of John and encourage all who knew him to remember the joy and laughter he brought to this world.
