He was preceded in death by his parents and his ex-wife Laurie Moneyhon, the mother of his children.


John retired from Deublin Company, Waukegan, IL, in 2016 after 37 years of employment.  After retiring he relocated to Texarkana, Arkansas then Texarkana, Texas to enjoy his retirement by bowling, playing golf, fishing, and riding his Harley-Davidson motorcycle.  He also enjoyed his occasional trips to the casino.  Though he relocated to Texarkana, John remained a loyal Chicago sports fan, always rooting for the Chicago Bears and cheering on the Chicago White Sox.
