After graduating high school, John joined the U.S. Navy, and was a communications technician where his security clearance took him to serve aboard the submarine USS GREENLING (SS-213), and various other classified jobs around the country. John served honorably from 1967 – 1971.
John married the love of his life, Mollie (Peregrine) in 1974. They were married 48 years before her passing. Together John and Mollie loved to travel, especially to New Orleans where they experienced the finest things in life. They were avid racing fans of the Indianapolis 500, and John loved camping, hiking, fishing, golf, hunting, and everything outdoors. He loved running, participating in a few half marathons.
