John, also known by many as “Bean” or “Beanzo”, spent most of his life driving his truck for his company JKB Trucking, LLC.  John graduated from Griswold High School in 1977.  He worked in his younger days at Brewster Orchard and later for Palmer Brothers in Lisbon, CT.  He was a devoted life member of the Jacques Cartier Club.  He loved to cook, you could not keep him out of the grocery stores.  He truly enjoyed his 50’s music and loved to party and entertain.  John was hardworking, generous and always willing to lend a helping hand.  He was a loving husband, father and friend who will be truly missed. Loved by many, appreciated by all he met.
