Born and raised in Arlington, Washington, John served in World War II in the 15th Air Force. He was a graduate of Washington State University and enjoyed a long career in the dairy industry. John and Betty moved the family to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1957 and have lived the last 27 years in Concord and Martinez.

After retirement, John spent many years as a docent on the liberty ship, Jeremiah O'Brien, was a leader of their church seniors hiking group, and an active member of the Martinez Swingers Square Dance Club.
