news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY: 

John’s hobby is attending many sports venues. He was born March 22, 1942 in N Denver. Family had moved to Littleton by the first grade where he attended class in a one room school house, The area is now ACC.. In the 8th grade he was taught in the basement of Lutheran Presbyterian church. By ninth grade Littleton High School was built. Here John readily admits he pursued athletics far more than academics. He was awarded an athletic scholarship to Denver University but the school dropped football before he ever got to put on a uniform and lug the ball. John did end up with a Business Admin. Degree..


(2011 photo, I forgot to take his mug shot this year.)

In 1965 John sold insurance, etc for State Farm, retiring in 2005. He brought some of his remaining State Farm freebies even passing out a few. As a child his first job was performing magic tricks for .05 a pop. Later he was a paperboy then 10 years as a tile setter to which he attributes his current bad back. Forty some years ago he entered the Army Reserves and served from 1967-1969. He was stationed at Fort Bliss serving as a JAG trying soldiers accused of errors in judgment in Viet Nam. His job was as a court reporter.

John has been married 36 years or a total of 6 wives. From this target rich environment John only claims 4 children producing 4 grandchildren.

John listed a number of rivers starting with the Weaver and ending up with the South Platte. Ron Johnson brought him into the club about 44 years ago. John was a Club President in 1981/82 and has been sitting at table one since 1990.
