The family moved their dairy farm to Hackettstown, N.J, after which his father died. His mother never remarried so John was fatherless from age 4.

After two years of study at CSU in Fort Collins to become a Landscape Architect he moved to Denver, married Margaret his wife of 48 years and went on to have two children Rebecca and Scott and then complete his college degree in Marketing.
