John's original last name was Firestine. He legally changed his last name to Firestone. He is the only child of John and Agnes (Owen) Firestine and was born in Indiana. John was self-employed as the owner of a carpet / flooring business. John had been under doctor's care for heart related issues, but wanted to take a trip to Frankenmuth, MI to enjoy one of their famous chicken dinners. He and his wife traveled there, enjoyed dinner, and the following morning in his hotel room he fell ill and was taken to the hospital where he passed away. John grew up in Detroit, MI, but he and his wife Jessie moved to OH where they lived out their lives with their children.

There is a discrepancy in the spelling of John's original surname. His State of Indiana birth certificate has it spelled as Feirstein. His parent's death certificates spell their name as Firestine.
