John also enjoyed being involved in the lives of his many nephews and nieces and could tell great stories from his childhood to the present.

He and Dorothy enjoyed spending time together, visiting, shopping, and eating out.
John was a lifelong member of Queen of the Holy Rosary Catholic Church at Wea. He never missed Mass, sang in the choir for many years, and loved worshipping the Lord. John was dearly loved and will be missed by all who knew him.
