John was involved in the automotive industry in Rochester for many years, working at Dorschel Automotive and Bob Johnson’s. John was a beacon of trust for those who needed car service, and always willing to help and create assurance in a space where most people have limited understanding or comfort. He will be remembered as a devoted family man, as a proud husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. John loved spending time with his family and friends traveling, taking cruises, and camping in the summer at Gravel Ponds. His greatest satisfaction was spending quality time with the people he loved, enjoying a glass of wine with some great music, and sharing a good story and some great laughs. He had a tremendous ability to make a positive connection with everyone he met, and was so respected by those who knew him. John also was known for making his meatballs and Sunday Sauce, always incorporating the most special ingredient, love. John will be very missed, but his impact on those that loved him will be everlasting.
