John began his career as an airline pilot with North Central Airlines in 1968. He continued with Republic Airlines and finished his thirty-three and half year career as a pilot for Northwest Airlines. Over the years, he enjoyed general aviation flying, boating and golf. John was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and friend.
