John was a hard-working, helpful, self-taught electrician and handyman who was so proud of his family, his Catholic faith, and his Croatian heritage. He was a lifelong member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, St. John the Baptist Mens Catholic Club, and the Croatian Fraternal Union.
John will be remembered for mentoring upcoming electricians and business owners, the toasts he shared during family holiday shots, an occasional cigar, his love of coaching and watching baseball, the many house construction and repair projects for family and friends, and his love for the music of Frank Sinatra. As a younger man, John enjoyed playing softball, bowling, dancing and socializing with his Armour Packing House friends.
