John worked for many construction companies and on several projects including the Joe's Valley Dam and the CCandH Canal. He later started his own company, Sinbad Construction, along with his wife and son.

His favorite place was his property in Joe's Valley. He had many friends who shared a lot of great times with him. He is the reigning horseshoe champ of Joe's Valley.
