John was born on October 20, 1939 in Mahanoy City, PA. He graduated with a degree in Engineering Science in Physics from Fenn College (Cleveland State University) in 1962. He had a distinguished career in engineering design and testing for the space programs Mercury, Gemini and Apollo in the 1960s in Houston, TX, and later as an engineer at Pittsburgh Des-Moines, Inc. He fulfilled a lifetime dream of building a house and retiring in a small town where he could read and study astronomy. John loved his family, his Creator and the innocent animals on Earth, especially cats.
