John graduated from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida. He earned a bachelor degree and worked for UNISON in Norwich, NY. He loved his Jeep, watching paranormal shows and visiting Cape May, NJ. He repaired electronics and I Phones, so nobody would have to tell their parents they broke theirs.

We were very sad to hear of John's passing yesterday. Although we were miles apart and never met, I knew John through work meetings and phone calls. He was a smart guy with a caring heart, who I know first hand, would reach out to others in their time of loss with kind words. Our thoughts and prayers are with his precious girls, loving wife Amy, and extended family. So very very sorry for your loss. May God comfort you, give you faith, hope and strength in this tough time. Isa. 40 : 29

I will miss John very much, he was a great guy, I loved working with him at Unison. He had a gentle soul and always a smile for anyone. John volunteered to be a part of my LOTO team. He was a dedicated guy, always willing to lend a hand. I will miss seeing him at the plant. RIP john, God speed buddy!
