Like his father before him, John joined the Navy after graduating high school. After his honorable discharge from the service he went to work for United Lithographers, leaving the company after many years to move to Plymouth where he took a job at Newfield House. John was a steadfast, loyal worker until he had to take an early retirement due to disability. John was a voracious reader and was always with a book, even at the kitchen table while he was enjoying a meal. He was extremely knowledgeable and was a Civil War and World War I and II history buff. He enjoyed watching historical documentaries, visiting Civil War battlefields and collecting memorabilia. John’s greatest passion was in genealogy. His research into the family history led him to discover many notable people we were related to by common ancestors. He would share with us any and all interesting discoveries into his ancestral research. Our brother John will be deeply missed.
