He loved fishing in Tampa with his dad and childhood friend, Freddy. In Pennsylvania, he and his friend George spent many hours at Hereford Manor swapping fishing stories while fishing for bass. Between his time spent serving in the U.S. Navy and traveling to paint motion picture sets, John had many wonderful stories to share. His bar, The Blue Marble, was a place he loved and a place where he displayed items he collected through the years.
