He worked as a Machinist and in Production for Rohr/Goodrich/UTC Aerospace/Collins Aerospace in Chula Vista, CA. for 40 years. John had an associate degree in Physical Therapy and did some massage therapy. John was a great man with a warm heart. He loved God, his family, and friends. He was a very independent thinker and would love to have in depth conversation regardless of the topic. His openness and kind heartedness was reflected in so many kind jesters and selfless acts of kindness to people and friends from all walks of life, perhaps that why so many called him their friend.
