John was a member of St. Ambrose Catholic Church for over 67 years.  He was also a member of the St. Ambrose men’s choir and the Bocce club. John worked as a Foreman for a sheet metal company.  He spent countless volunteer hours at various businesses on The Hill doing renovations.  More importantly, his daughters were amazed at his ability to build anything, such as his garage, beautiful grotto, brick driveway, and cabinets.  His workmanship is evident in each of his daughters’ homes.  He loved gardening, tinkering around his home, and playing cards.  His first and foremost passion in life was his loving family.

Our family would like to give a special thank you to his two wonderful caretakers, Dawn Taylor and Lisa Todd, for their warmth, dedication and kindness towards our father.

Family will receive friends on Wednesday, December 29, 2021 from 9 a.m. until the time of Mass at 11 a.m. at St. Ambrose Catholic Church.
