Affectionately known as "Frog", he was was a graduate of Ridley High School, where he was a proud member of the football comradery. He bled green and would proudly say while he played, he never lost a game. John was full of life and enjoyed being around people. He had a way of making you laugh and if you needed him, he was there. He loved the outdoors and would fish and go camping whenever he could. He was a loving son, brother, uncle, friend and soon to be spouse; a beautiful soul that will truly be missed by many.
