John loved traveling, the Shore and all beaches at sunrise, playing pool, joking constantly, rock and roll music, and the Philadelphia Eagles. He loved wholeheartedly, gave unconditional love, and brought laughter to all around him. He was a strong man who firmly believed that no matter how difficult your circumstances are you can think happy thoughts and should strive to be happy. His legacy is the joy and laughter he brought to life each and every ordinary day.
