John was a passionate and avid golfer who played regularly with family, friends, and business associates. He was looking forward to sharing this passion with his grandsons. John enjoyed hunting and fishing and old time movies. He loved dancing which is what drew Barbara to John in 1971 at a place called Gigi’s in White Plains, NY.
