John was born in Glenn Ridge, New Jersey. The family moved to Columbus when he was in grade school where he attended Immaculate Conception School, Bishop Watterson High School and North High School. John served in the United States Army from 1968 to 1971 and was honorably discharged on March 26, 1971. John spent his adult life working in the food and beverage industry working in bars and pubs in Columbus and Buckeye Lake. He was a loyal Buckeye fan and loved to collect Buckeye memorabilia. But his real passion was gardening which filled him with much satisfaction in recent years. From sunflowers to corn, tomatoes and peppers. He loved it all. John was a proud veteran, brother and uncle. He will be missed by all who knew him.
The family would like to express our sincere appreciation to The Chalmers P. Wylie VA Care Center, the doctors, nurses and staff who cared for John’s medical needs with such compassion and care.
