For many years John was an avid fan and season ticket holder of the Springfield hockey teams. John was a lover of all sports on TV especially following his favorite Boston teams: the Bruins, Patriots and Red Sox. He loved daytime TV game shows from the 1970’s. He enjoyed shepherds pie and made awesome apple pies. John was thankful for the compassionate care he received at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston and at Baystate Medical Center. John will be sadly missed by his family of close friends, neighbors, and co-workers.
