John is a proud WWII U.S. Army Veteran, and went on to retire from Stanley Schultz as a glazer after working diligently for over 45 years. He loved his boat and being out on the water, but you could always find him piddling in his garage trying to find something to build.

Never did a visit go when we were kids that Johnny didn’t go out to his truck & bring us in candy & the one candy I will always recall was Sugar Daddys. My other memory the time when he told Ashley which ever kitten you catch you can have. We had Buttercup for a long time. He was one of my all time favorite cats 💕 Johnny had one of the kindest souls. May you forever rest in peace. Much love. Pam
