John was raised in Humble, TX and graduated with the class of 1977 from Humble High School. John attended University of Arizona to pursue his dream of being an Olympic Water Polo player. John had a tremendous career in the Water Polo field which immediately started his love of water. As well, at an early age John was an entrepreneur who started a business, Northwoods Pool Supply. It was at a swimming pool convention where he met the love of his life, Suzanne. John & Suzanne were married on November 5, 1983. Their adventure began with a wild honeymoon in Jamaica which would be their last international travel. John was a devoted father and avid fisherman. He enjoyed being outdoors and he enjoyed always teaching anyone a new trait/skill. He was a spiritual man who was not afraid to talk about God and was not afraid to pray. He loved the history channel and talking politics. John could light up a room with his smile and his laugh was contagious. John was known just like his father always to be able to tell you a wildly entertaining stories. John had an unfailing work ethic and a willingness to come at anytime to help anyone in need. He was blessed to have any friends that in his heart he loved like family.
