He loved Riding his Harley, Driving his Corvettes, Wakeboarding, Jet Skiing, and riding in a jet boat he modified from his father Jack. John's biker call sign was "JOKER". John loved music, good food and good times. You would see him joking around at family barbeques, making every body laugh. The loves of his life were his father, mother, sisters and brother, deceased grandmother Emma Aldrich. But more closely, his loving daughter Jade Christine. More recently, he became a regular at the local Kingsville and Bishop American Legions. Son of two Navy Veterans, John did not serve in the military, but had great respect for our country its flag, and the many men and women who served, gave their lives, and those who continue to serve today. Having learned auto mechanics from his father Jack, John rose to be the go-to guy for automotive repair. He was employed up until his death with Auto Nation North, Corpus Christi. Under former General Manager, Skip Harmon, John was the designated Corvette Mech. A special thank-you to Angela, John's attending Nurse, and Christus Spohn Shoreline for their care during this extremely difficult time, and to the many friends, family and loved ones, too many to mention.
