He started in the mail room at Ryerson Steel Chicago and was Claim Department Manager, Credit Union Manager, retiring after over 30 years.

In younger years John was an avid hunter, golfer and sports Superstar. He was a Chicago White Sox fan and definitely NOT a Chicago BEAR fan. He loved Shark Tank and The Golden Girls.

He was loved by all and he accepted all. A man that took pride in other people being happy and was always there when you needed a helping hand. He loved parties at the Oak Lawn house and enjoyed bringing everyone together. He was always fun and very patient, except while driving, refusing your suggestions on directions.

His kind-hearted soul and easy going nature will be truly missed.

My uncle John was a sweet and gentle soul. I loved watching his favorite game show with him “Jeopardy”. He most of the time could beat me at the game. He absolutely loved beating me. I will miss his rendition of “You are my Sunshine” to my Mom Palmy

In one way or another we have all been touched by uncle John’s Fingerprint. RIP

I only met John a few short past revolutions around the sun. 2.8? Always enjoyed 5 pm gathering poolside, where he often mossey'd down after the Cubs game ended. A kind, smart, sweet man.....who called it like it was.

What a great role model for us all. Shirley and I send our condolences. I will often reflect on him and strive to imitate the kindness I saw in John . Take best of care, Carmen, Edward,Carmen D. and extended family.
