John was born and raised in Ridley Township and proudly graduated from Ridley High School. Following his graduation, John joined the Navy, where he worked as a Radio Operator. Upon completing his military service, John embarked on a career with SEPTA Railroad, where he spent 27 years before his retirement. John went on to bartend for 10 years at Delaware Park Casino.
