John was a veteran of the Korean War who earned two bronze service stars. He retired after more than 40 years as Superintendent of the Catskill's many golf courses and was a member of the Hudson Valley Golf Course Superintendent's Association. One of John's favorite pleasures in life was being at the little league ballfields with his family, umpiring behind home plate. In his spare time, he enjoyed making maple syrup with his family. One of his passions was mowing his yard to golf course perfection. He also enjoyed deep sea fishing and traveling the world with his wife, Louise, his mother-in-law, Frieda Fisher, and his dear friends Alma and Russel Cross. John and Louise were also avid members of the Tri-Valley Squares Square Dancing Club.
