John was a true member of the greatest generation. Served our country in WWII from D Day to the end of the war. In his later years he recounted his experiences in books and speeches educating the public to value the true experiences of WWII veterans.
John was the Head of Engineering at Johnson Rubber Company holding many patents in the Rubber Industry, Vice President at US Molding, member of the Cardinal Board of Education, award winning photographer, painter, wood carver, and Ukrainian Easter egg artist, adamant supporter of his children's athletic and scholarship careers, caretaker of the 200 year old Clarke Farm, and avid fisherman his entire life. He was a mentor to many young people and business associates giving them excellent advice in life and business.
He always had a joke for everyone to brighten up their day.
