On October 10, 1966 he joined the Army and served until October 9, 1972 receiving the National Defense Service Medal and a Good Conduct Medal. After an honorable discharge he returned to the industry until retirement. He was also an active member of Post 0489 American Legion and loved spending time with his family.
John was a loving man who got along well with everyone. He always put his family before anything else and loved them with all of his heart. He enjoyed talking about history, religion, movies, and Chicago sports. John will be missed by all, but his heart and spirit will be with us always.
