He set out on his own and opened Loveday's Tax Service in Brockton, MA and later another smaller office in Titusville, FL. Except for a few years when the family moved to South Easton, MA, John (Jack) was a lifetime resident of Brockton, MA until becoming a "snowbird" travelling to Titusville, FL for 14 years, and permanently moving to Titusville in 2014.

He had a love for sailing, his twin brother, Charlie, was a sailboat Captain and they made many trips up and down the Atlantic coast between Hyannis, MA and West Palm Beach, FL. He also had a love affair with baseball and the Red Sox was his team. He pitched in the Senior Baseball League in the over 30, 40 and 50 categories for several years with friends and many retired Red Sox players. During the 1999 season he pitched with the Montreal, Canada Spyglass team that captured the  MSBL Senior Baseball World Series Championship. In 1994 he was invited to pitch the opening game at Doubleday Field in Cooperstown, NY to celebrate baseball's 100th anniversary.
