On a blind date over coffee, he met this wonderful lady named Shirley, she knew that once she looked into his eyes that he was the one. They were married on May 8, 2009 at the courthouse in Plymouth.
John worked construction for Eisenhower for numerous years and was also known to many as a handyman. He lived his life to the fullest, always smiling, never having a bad thing to say about anyone. John was known as a man that would give the shirt off of his back for you.
He loved to woodwork and loved to make birdhouses in his spare time. Blue berry picking was one of his bigger hobbies and if any blue berries would make it home, he would freeze them and have Shirley make deserts for their enjoyment.
