John loved to bowl. He started bowling in the sixth grade in the junior league at Dellwood bowl. John and his friends would work at the bowling alley, doing simple things, in return for free bowling. John was a very good and accomplished bowler. He bowled two 300 games. One 299 game, one 298 game. He had seven eleven strikes in a row games. A 792 series. He had a 200 plus average for over twenty years. He was an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan and St. Louis Blues fan.
John was a word class piddler. Always putzing around the house and yard doing something. This is a compliment. John didn't waste time doing something that wasn't important or useful. He didn't spend time in an aimless or idle manner. As everyone knows he was an overachiever, when it came to working on or doing projects around the house. He finished the basement, the master bathroom, the two other bathrooms, family room, living room, laundry room, redid the closet in all the bedrooms, landscaped the back yard, worked on and took care of the pool. Whew! As we all know, it's' amazing what John could do when he put his mind to it.
You can't talk about John without mentioning his love and enjoyment of life. Spending lots of time with his family and friends. Some of his friendships going back to the first grade at St. Sebastian, where mama Lupo volunteered in the cafeteria. He loved the beach, the lake, waterskiing, and riding the wave runner. Around 2006 John and Susan went to Park City, Utah, where they fell in love with snow-skiing and everything the mountains had to offer.
