A grateful and longtime member of the Fellowship of AA and Friends of Bill W., John was a dedicated member for 42 years. He volunteered his time mentoring young people struggling with alcohol addiction.
John will be remembered as a proud father, wonderfully loving husband, and a kind friend to all. John and Dotty had a beautifully successful marriage and a happy life together. John was always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need. He had a voracious appetite for books and knowledge, always knowing at least a little bit about everything. John enjoyed traveling around New England, especially to the seacoast and mountains. His travels were pure adventure because of his insatiable curiosity. A devoted husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle and friend, he will be deeply missed by all those who loved him.
