John, better known as Mogs, was retired from Local 393.  He was an avid softball player until 2009.  He enjoyed many trips to Vegas along with countless trips to Minnesota and Wisconsin to go fishing.  He liked watching sports, especially the Atlanta Braves and was an exceptional unofficial sports commentator, whether it was at home or his second home the Bears Den where he also enjoyed pinball.  John loved his family and will be dearly missed.
