Preceding John in death were; his parents, his wife, Lorna, and his brothers Richard and Ronald. John’s wish was to have a graveside service at Hillside Cemetery in Center City, which was held January 31, 2017.

He taught art in junior and senior high schools in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. His many interests include a collection of modern and antique art glass. A muralist, philatelist and a history buff, he also found time to do an occasional oil painting.
