John followed his father’s legacy and enlisted in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War era. He was stationed in West Berlin, Germany at “Check Point Charlie,” the famous crossing between East Berlin and West Berlin at the Berlin Wall.
John was the owner and proprietor of the Brunswick Pool Room and Coffee Shop. It was there that he developed his knack for teasing and playing practical jokes on his friends. He was a handicapper and fan of college as well as professional football, baseball and basketball. He was a lifelong New York Yankee fan with his favorite player being Mickey Mantle. After retirement, he enjoyed going to as many baseball games as he could at PNC Park in Pittsburgh and rooting for the Bucs.
