He received his education in a one-room schoolhouse through the eighth grade and then attended and graduated from Alcester High School in 1961.
Following high school, John was united in marriage with Linda Trudeau. John was blessed with four children.
John worked for the co-op in Beresford delivering fuel until making his home in Sioux Falls in 1968, and beginning his 30-year career as a letter carrier with the United States Postal Service. In his retirement, John worked summers on the grounds crew at Minnehaha Country Club for six years and spent four years at the Sioux Falls Parks and Recreation Department.
