After graduating from Mount Diablo High School, he was soon wed to Anneka Jan Walton. John proudly served in the National Guard, helped his family on the ranch, worked at Shell Oil, became an owner/operator truck driver.

John loved telling a story, a joke, some good country music and having his family around him.
