At the age of nine years he and his mother immigrated to Canada to join his father in Sudbury. Dear brother to Mike (Jean), Mary (late Val Dumencu). Fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews. John graduated from Sudbury Tech and Mining school and he worked at International Nickel Company for 32 years, retiring in 1985. John always had an interest in added education. He received his real estate license and enjoyed a second career. Among his other interest was building a few houses from the trees that he cut and milled on his own saw mill, photography, card playing, square dancing, deer hunting on Manitoulin Island and gardening which kept him active.
