He loved tailgating and cheering on the GreenBay Packers and Milwaukee Brewers. After retiring John enjoyed the snowbird life with his wife Kay - winters in Jupiter Fl and summers in WI. John was most happy catching perch on the bay or pompano off the beach in Jupiter.

He has nine granddaughters and one grandson. Also, survivors to John are brother Bob VanDrisse, sister Margaret VanDrisse, and sister-in-law Patti Raymond.

Mark, Gary, Ann, and Marne,
My condolences on your lost. I have plenty of fond memories of your Dad, including running over to your house when he returned from fishing to see what was caught, and running in the opposite direction when a stray baseball found its way through your garage or living room window. Either way, he still had the same smile on his face.
