John lived in Bridgeport his entire life beginning in his parents' home then spending two years in the army stationed in Colorado, to an apartment on 32nd Street, a home on Lituanica and finally back to the same house his parents had. His family were lifelong parishioners of Immaculate Conception where he attended grade school and served as an altar boy. He continued his education graduating from St. Rita High School and attending IIT. He married Patricia Alm in June, 1956, together they raised 6 children, who all attended Catholic high schools, a sacrifice for a family living on a truck driver's salary.The death of his oldest son,Michael, in 1992, was a difficult time in his otherwise blessed life. He liked nothing better than having his family around him, celebrating a birthday, graduation, communion, marriage, or nothing at all. He will be remembered as a man with a wicked sense of humor, who loved his wife, his children, bowling, golf, and the family cottage in Wisconsin. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus Archbishop Quigley Council #2428.
