After graduation from Erie Technical High School, John enrolled in Findlay College where he received his bachelor’s degree in education. He then returned to Erie and taught in the Erie School District for more than 30 years. John belonged to the YMCA, where he enjoyed playing handball and participating in many successful tournaments.
