John left Brooklyn for Los Angeles with his mother and father in 1944, and lived there with his wife from 1955 - 1972.

John enjoyed many things such as dancing, bowling, gardening, reading, working with children and watching the Lakers, but nothing gave him more pleasure than spending time with his family. He will be forever known for his wisdom, kindness and generosity, and will be truly missed. Services will be held at Our Lady Queen of Peace Cemetery, Colton, California on July 14.
