Family Tributes ~
John attended school in Wyandotte, beginning with kindergarten and graduating from Roosevelt High School in 1948, where he played tennis. He was employed by Pennwalt Corporation for 43 years as a Pipefitter and was also involved with Union Services. He was a hard worker, enjoyed his work and his co-workers.
John’s love for people and caring nature was evident in his involvement with his church. He enjoyed attending church activities and was a wonderful leader, involved with the boy’s Sunday school group as well as adult and youth groups.
John enjoyed traveling as well as many other hobbies, including music, coin collecting, football and bowling with the Pennwalt bowling team.
Dad liked fun, new experiences, and adding little tidbits of interesting knowledge along the way. He was a people person. He also had a serious side and was a good example of a hard worker and helper. He was a good provider. He encouraged his children and grandchildren and was proud of them.
Throughout his life he served in his church in many ways. He was a doer and especially enjoyed teaching boys in Sunday School. His love of Jesus could be seen in many ways.
Though he only had a high school education he was an avid reader and that took him to places of greater knowledge. He also loved learning through travel and was fortunate to experience several places in the world.
I will remember him as a man that was respected. Friends loved him. His example of good character and high standards will live on in our hearts.
I remember Dad for how much he loved his whole family. Even in his later years with many health issues to deal with, he would muster up the energy and strength to be with us all.
He enjoyed going fishing with me and his son-in-law Joe. Although we didn't fish as much as we both would have liked, it was always a great time out. He even caught more fish than I sometimes.
Dad was a tremendous reader. Being informed on any number of issues was something that was extremely important to him. If you needed a weather report, you could always count on him.
Dad had an uncanny knack for figuring out who would win any number of sporting events. He always surprised me in that way.
He would always help someone in a time of need. We wonder if we have forgotten to show our gratitude enough for all the things you did. We're thinking of you now and hoping that you knew all along how much you meant to us.
