As John’s civilian career evolved with law enforcement, his military experience gave him the foundation for success. He credits leadership qualities, strong and clear communication skills, ensuring community security as being guiding principles. John’s community involvement continued after retirement. The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) trained John to prepare and respond to disasters, utilizing fire safety, search and rescue, team response, and organizational skills. He is a trained storm watcher. John is active in his local Legion, participates in patriotic ceremonies, and honor guard.
At Good Shepherd Community we have greatly benefitted from John’s loyalty, strength of character, sense of duty, and caring heart. He has well over 1200 recorded hours of volunteer time with us.
