John was the youngest of seven children. According to his oldest sister Judy, John
had a zest for life and venturing into new things. He was especially fond of his older brother, Dick. Another sister,
Candace Roberts Lauber posted to the internet that John assured the family he was safe as he was a mechanic and worked on tanks.
John is buried with his mother in Prairie Grove Cemetery, Fort Wayne, Indiana. She passed away in 1966 before John was killed.
According to records, the tank he was riding in, ran over a land mine near Chau Lam (2), 7 kilometers east of Que Son Vietnam.
He died from wounds and burns received while in that tank which was on a combat sweep operation.
