He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Kathie (Cross); and three daughters, April (Ed Faust) Narehood, Sheri McConnell and Beth (Mark Shannon) McConnell.

John was a graduate of Altoona Area High School and in 1999, he retired from Faith Vending, Co., after 35 years of service.
John enjoyed spending time with his family, especially with his great grandkids, playing games, always making sure they won, and just enjoying them learning and watching them grow. He also enjoyed spending time with his pets and riding his four-wheeler through the woods.
There will be no public viewing. A private memorial service will be held at the convenience of his family.
The family suggests that contributions in his memory be made to Central Penna Humane Society.
