John followed his father’s footsteps by joining the military at a young age. John proudly served in the United States Navy and was a Vietnam Veteran.

John retired from Carrier in Syracuse. His greatest love was for his family. John loved having his grandchildren around and their curiosity as he painted. John was an accomplished artist. He painted a variety of topics. Landscapes and portraits were his favorites.

In John’s younger years, he loved the farm and animals. He took great pleasure while he and Pearl taught children to ride horses. Most currently, John enjoyed the companionship of his painting group.
