After the Air Force, he began working at King Soopers Grocery Store in 1968 as a stock boy and worked his way up to Manager by the time he retired in 2008. Not ready to call it quits, he continued to work as a Merchandiser for a few different companies until he fully retired in 2019.

John (Papa to is Family) enjoyed camping and fishing with his buddies, including his best friend Gerry Hinshaw.  Papa loved to spoil his grandkids and was always a big hit with them during the holidays. You could see how proud he was of them with the way he lit up whenever he talked about them.
