John was born in Queens, NY and spent most of his childhood in Ohio and Munich, Germany. He lived in Pennsylvania where he raised his daughters until they left for college. He moved to Fernandina Beach in 2010 where he began the last chapter of his life, met his wife Kim, and enjoyed his final days. 

John graduated from Miami University with a Bachelor of Science in Applied Science (College of Engineering and Computing).  After he graduated from college, he enjoyed his career of 25 years and retired from Procter & Gamble. After a few years of retirement, he moved to Florida and started working with Westrock. John loved being an engineer.

John loved golfing!!  He also loved the band Chicago, being outside, international and domestic travel, New York City, the NY Yankees, spending time with family and friends, watching golf tournaments or any sport, and his new love of hunting shark teeth (he always found bigger ones than Kim). 

He was very involved with the Fernandina Beach Rotary Club.  John served as President 2 times, Assistant District Governor, Rotary Exchange Kids, District Level in Youth Services coordinating the annual Youth Exchange weekend in Fernandina Beach for around 7 years, and the Boy Scouts - he also helped scouts get closer to earning Eagle Scout award, which he was awarded in 1974 while living in Munich, Germany.  He was a Paul Harris Major Donor.  John and his wife, Kim, met at the Fernandina Beach Rotary Club meeting in 2010 and married in 2013. The Rotary Club of Fernandina Beach will be naming one of their annual High School Scholarships in honor of John.
