While in Louisiana John worked as a certified EMT, a volunteer firefighter, and was on the rescue squad; his job at Ranco moved him and his family to Delaware in 1994. He was an active member of the St. Mary’s Catholic Church and Parkinson’s Foundation in Delaware. John found a passion and a hobby in leather work and didn’t let the Parkinson’s mess with his golf game. John was a proud and loving family man above all else.
