Over the years John would coach Little League and participate in many leagues, including golf, bowling, and pool. He spent quite a bit of time in the mountains whether that was at the family cabin, hauling firewood, or fishing, boating, and camping at many different lakes and rivers throughout Montana. In addition to working at the refinery in Great Falls, he retired from Buttrey Foods Warehouse and worked a few odd jobs during his retirement.
