John grew up in Lakewood Ohio, and began college at Case Institute of Technology in 1945 until he joined the US Navy. After his discharge he finished his BA in electrical engineering and married the love of his life (In his words, they "met at a square dance and started going 'round together"). The family moved to Wausau in 1961 where John worked at Marathon Electric.. In 1971 he began his second career as an instructor at Northcentral Technical College until retirement in 1987, and then in his third career as an author of five textbooks, with "Programmable Logic Controllers" now in its fifth edition. John was an outstanding and committed volunteer, giving back to the community through his years of volunteer hours and leadership roles as a lifetime member of The Greater Kiwanis Club of Wausau, at First Presbyterian Church, and on the founding board of Big Brothers/Big Sisters. He also volunteered at the Wausau Conservatory of Music, Aspirus, Marathon County Historical Society, NTC Foundation, and United Way's RSVP. John was a talented pianist who also tuned pianos, often as a volunteer.
