John was born and raised in Atlantic City and married his sweetheart Caroline in 1951. They had their first child in 1952 and moved to Stratford, NJ in 1965 where they raised their family.
John was a Twizzler-loving, "do-it-all" handyman and carpenter, and enjoyed interior home redesign projects with his wife and children.
