Because of his love of sports and writing John linked the two together and became an excellent sports writer.

He also worked for fifteen years in the aerospace industry. John enjoyed serving for seven years on the Buckley City Council.
John will be remembered as a gentle person who cared deeply about his family and friends. He especially loved football and could talk your ear off about it, whether it be professional football or college football.
John led a very full life. He enjoyed traveling, especially the many trips he made to Italy with his family. He also enjoyed walking on the beach and spending time with his grandchildren. His favorite activity was reading books to them.
John was an active member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church and the Sons of Italy Auburn Lodge.
John will forever be in our hearts as a loving husband, dad, and papa. He is survived by his wife of forty-two years Rose Marie, daughter Nicole (Joe) Davis, granddaughter Sophia and grandson Michael.
He is also survived by brothers Mark, Ben and Matt; sister Beth and many nieces and nephews who also loved him.
