John was born in Rochester, N.Y. in 1932 and moved with his family to the Spencerport area in 1937, where his father began a lifetime career in farming and apple growing. As a boy, he worked alongside his siblings on his parents’ farm while attending grammar school at St. John’s in Spencerport and then Spencerport High School. There he excelled as a baseball player, all the while tending to his daily duties on the farm with his parents and siblings.
He met his wife Pat at a square dance in 1955, not long before being called to serve in the U.S. Army for two years. He and Pat married in October, 1957 and over the following years raised three children. John designed and built a beautiful home in Riga for all his family to enjoy, which they all greatly enjoyed for 33 years.
During their marriage, John was very supportive of Pat’s singing career in every aspect. He was a hard worker throughout his lifetime, all the while being there as a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, and devoted friend. Above all, his family came first!
John was a visionary, creating a wonderful life for his family. He was deeply loved by Pat, Eileen, Kathy and Eddie. He will be remembered by all who knew him as a person of deep faith, gentle spirit, and unwavering kindness. While greatly missed, he will continue to inspire those who admired his genuine character.
