The kids grew up and when John started High School, he went off to boarding school, but quickly decided he wanted to be back in Naples playing sports with his friends.  So he came back and was a star basketball player at Naples High School where he graduated  in 1962.

He had a basketball scholarship to go to College up North, and even though his family objected, he joined the Army and told his Sister, he just could not concentrate on basketball when all of his friends were in Vietnam fighting for our freedom.

He began his tour of duty in Vietnam on April 28, 1967.  In December of 1967 he became ill and was taken to Japan with was thought to be malaria.  He was soon diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma.  He was returned to the States to Walter Reed Hospital for treatment, where he died on January 19, 1968.

John received a National Defense, Vietnam Service w/Bronze Star, Vietnam Campaign Medals, and Vietnam Gallantry Cross Unit Citation.
