Returning from war, John received his bachelor’s degree in psychology from Boston College. He then courted and wed his wife of 48 years, Rosalita A. Power, in 1972. They have one daughter, Leanne. John succeeded in a career of Corrections, serving more than 20 years as Superintendent of Massachusetts County facilities in both Plymouth and Essex. After he and Rosalie both retired, they moved to Pinellas County, Florida where John pursued his hobbies of fishing, black-jack, and politics. He was a lifetime member of the American Disabled Veterans and the NRA.
He is preceded in death by his parents, and sister Jeannie Kusser. John leaves behind his wife Rosalie, daughter, Leanne (Graham), and sisters Janice, Patricia, and Katie Polio. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a family only graveside service will be held at Blue Hill Cemetery in Braintree on Friday, July 3, 2020, at 11:00am. In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for donations to be made to Buglers Across America, a nonprofit providing veterans with a live rendition of taps during graveside services.
