John is survived by Tania, loving wife and best friend of 33 years; daughter Linda (Nester); son John Michael (Lorna); and amazing grandchildren Katrina, Natalie, Sean, and Jared.

Predeceased by sister Mary, first wife Mary Anne, and youngest son David.

John so enjoyed the grandeur of Colorado’s mountains he accepted a teaching position at DU College of Law, sight unseen -- he stayed for 44 years.
