John began his career at the early age of 16 as a hand inserter at the Ottawa Citizen newspaper.  He moved up the ranks to becoming a Machine Operator where he remained at the Ottawa Citizen until he moved to the Windsor Star in 1997. John loved the outdoors and spent many years hunting at the family's Wooden Gun Hunt Club. He loved fishing and took every opportunity to cast a line. His love of golf was shared with his brother Tom. They played many courses in southern Ontario and later spent hours playing together online. John was passionate about luxury automobiles  - owning many different cars, trucks, and motorcycles over the years.
