He dedicated his life to students by teaching typing, business and tech lab for twenty-eight years. John was a successful boys’ and girls’ basketball coach, leading teams to numerous city championships. After retirement, John had the opportunity to coach both of his grandsons in Southern Colorado Basketball teams. His daughter Danette followed in her father’s footsteps and has been an elementary teacher in District Eleven for twenty-seven years. John was a lifelong Broncos fan and forty-year season ticket holder. He enjoyed traveling to see the Broncos play in both regular season games and Super Bowls.  John always had a passion for his roots and helped to organize Sopris reunions throughout the years.
