He was discharged from the Corp as a Corporal on April 20, 1954. John resided after his discharge in Brooklyn, NY where he lived with his wife Angelina and three children, John, Paul and Susan (Antonio).
John’s early life when school was dismissed for the summer, was spent on a Dairy Farm Upstate in Munnsville NY, Bob Lamb’s farm. He worked for room and board with a small stipend in which he used to buy a 22 rifle which he used to help keep the farm safe from predators. He enjoyed spending time on the farm where he learned the value of hard work.
After his Corp life, he moved back to Brooklyn where he raised his family. He worked as a Longshoreman on the NY docks alongside relatives. John was the grandfather of five; Paul Mourry, Janette Howel and Diana Perna, children of Paul and Kathleen (Sis Mourry) (nee Flynn), Robert and Michelle Antonio children of Susan and Robert Antonio.

The family would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation for the wonderful care given by all the nurses, aides, workers and staff at the Chelsea at Brookfield and hospice care nurses.
