John loved watching sports. Big fan of the Chicago Bears, Chicago White Sox and Notre Dame.
John volunteered his services and time in helping keep the environment clean. A clean, well kept community brought joy to him. Traveling was a big part of John’s life. He would take trips on his own as with his Mom, always enjoying and experiencing the parts of the World. The 4th of July was his all-time favorite holiday. He would spend months anticipating what “fireworks” he would set off for family and friends to enjoy. John was an animal lover! Always had a simile on his face for his furry family. John will be greatly missed by his many cousins and friends.
