Following military service John opened and maintained his practice in the Medical Arts Building in Portland for the next 42 years. He specialized in health care to the elderly and infirm at bedside. From a young age he had a passion for painting and sketching. John loved fishing the streams and rivers of the Northwest where he could commune with nature and the wild.

He also was an avid music lover and supported the Portland Opera for many years. John was known for his kind and generous nature. He was preceded in death by his father, John and mother, Lavera with whom he will be interred in a private ceremony at Riverview Cemetery.

John was ordained as a ruling elder and deacon in the Presbyterian Church, USA. He was a longtime member and strong supporter of Kenilworth Presbyterian Church in Portland. A few of his countless contributions to the church included serving on the governing board, the deacons board, teaching Sunday school and making heavenly desserts.
