John served in the Army from 1964-1967. After the service John moved to central Ohio and started a remodeling company from nothing. It culminated into a very successful business employing many people whom he treated like family, often including them on vacations. John was an avid fisherman, fishing rivers and lakes from Canada to Florida, the Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf of Mexico.
John was also a talented artist who captured those scenes on canvas. John will be remembered as a hard worker who gave back to those who helped him in business and those in need.
