Born in Lynn and raised in Swampscott, John attended St. John the Evangelist School and graduated from Swampscott High Class of 1981. John also attended Northeastern University and later completed his degree in engineering at Wayland University in Texas while serving in the Air Force as a pneumatics specialist on aircraft. John was a gifted and talented individual, and spent the majority of his professional career working for Henkel Corporation, where he designed and built prototypes for manufacturing solutions.
