John is survived by his sister, Ilona; two sons, John and Steven; their mother, June; his partner, Inga Carton; and 4 grandchildren, Alexander, Hope, Ashley, and Amber.

After living in Louisiana and Texas, he left his adopted family to move to LaGrange, Illinois where he worked for Singer Sewing Machine Company and then at the Electro-Motive Division of General Motors where he worked as an electrical technician until his retirement.

John enjoyed bowling, throwing horse shoes and traveling throughout his life and he will be dearly missed by his family and friends.
