John was born in New York and made the long journey to San Bernardino with his family at 8 years old. He has since been a resident of Highland.
He chose Highland as the place to plant his roots and as a single father, raise his daughter.

He owned and operated Mac’s Spring Shop for 30 years. John’s infectious charisma will be greatly missed. His absence will be felt for years to come.
