John was born Easter Sunday, 4/5/1942 in Philadelphia. He was the 3rd child of John Joseph and Pauline. He attended Olney high school then he moved to Ardsley and graduated from Abington High School in 1960. He began his automotive career at Abington high school where he completed a work school program by maintaining and fixing their school buses. He began working for Sears as an auto mechanic in April 1963, retiring 38 years later. He met Bonnie, September 1969, when she brought her car in for a tune up and he offered to fix her car for free. John and Bonnie were married 9/16/1972 beginning their 47 year journey together.
John was a 50 year Philadelphia Flyer fan and season ticket holder . He witnessed the Flyers win two championships, attending the first in the Spectrum. After that first championship, his wife navigated through all the chaos
on Broad St with their 5 month old daughter to pick him up and then head down to the Villas. He loved his Flyers. His love of the Jersey shore was undeniable starting at the young age of 6 when he and his Dad rode a bus down to purchase a house in the Villas. After his marriage, he was introduced to vacationing in New England. His love of Silver Lake began a new vacation passion, which eventually lead to his love of the Maine Coast. In 2003, John and Bonnie started a dream of retiring in Maine which was cut short. John truly loved his "Maine, the way life should be" farmhouse.
