John was a US Navy Veteran and served during the Vietnam War. He was very proud of his service to his country. He retired from the Department of Veterans Affairs due to his diagnosis of COPD. John had recently been diagnosed with cancer, but his death was due to the worsening of his COPD. Prior to his illness he was an outgoing, fun guy, who loved to ride his Harley Davidson Motorcycle, party with his family and friends, and just have a good time. He was such a good man, all of his life, and just liked to live life to the fullest. John was a single father, who fought to get custody of his daughter, when she was just a baby and raised her on his own with the help of his sister, Bonnie and brother-in-law Tommy so she could always be close to her family. He was always very close to his daughter and they were best friends. He was so proud of the woman she became and all of her accomplishments, she was his pride and joy. He also gained a son-in-law who he was proud of and loved as his own. But what he was most proud of was his grandson, and being a grandpa, he loved his grandson dearly, he was one of the main reasons he fought until the very end. He always had a strong family ethic and always wanted everyone to stay in touch. John was the best father, grandpa, brother, and uncle to all and will be missed dearly by all.
Private services will be held at a later date.
