John served in the US Army during WWII and was deployed to Germany. He was an accomplished assembler at Sikorsky Aircraft in Stratford for over 42 years. John was old school, working hard, instilling values and morals into his children and grandchildren.   He was loved by all that met him. His hobbies included golf, fishing, bowling, gardening, working around the house, and any sport the grandchildren were playing. His greatest joy in life was being with family.
