John's passions in life were his family, the Chicago Bears and music. He loved spending time with his family, and he was living his best life when he and his mom would travel to see the Bears play. John was devoted to his wife, Krysana, and her son Logan, and his beloved dog Babygirl. John participated in many Bix races and was proud to complete multiple half marathons.
