John was a lifelong member of St. Lawrence Church of Christ the King Parish and was a retired from Carbon Limestone Co. He proudly served his country during World War II with the 424th Infantry as a Heavy Armor Gunner in the Eastern European Campaign and was awarded Four Bronze Stars for his efforts.

After being honorably discharged, he married the former Rose Marie Genova on the 21st of March in 1944, and together they raised five children. “Ginger” as he was called by his siblings, enjoyed gardening and tending to his fruit trees and generally being outdoors at home.
