John was Catholic by faith. He loved the outdoors and enjoyed walking with his dogs in Sheffield. He would always take time to stop and talk to people in Sheffield. John was an avid fisherman and thoroughly looked forward to the first day of fishing season. He would take his nieces, nephews and great-nieces and nephews out for the day. They loved spending time with their Uncle John. Above all else John’s family was the most important to him. He was so very proud of his sons and their accomplishments.
