John was a lifelong resident of Geneva and graduated from Geneva High School in 1979. He enjoyed playing baseball and was on the golf team and a diver on the swim team.

scratch golfer and had two holes in one! He also taught golf lessons. He was a good cook, even making homemade pasta. After John's father passed, he took on the roll of Santa.
For the past 25 years, every Christmas he would put on the red suit and enjoyed seeing the children light up with excitement as Santa arrived!
