He was a graduate of the Williamsport Area High School. He retired as an auto body mechanic from Bieber’s Garage in 2009.

John was a World War II history buff and enjoyed watching the history channel. He also enjoyed hunting, archery, and his cats. Most of all he loved doing things for his children and spending time with his friends. His children and grandchildren will miss their “Pappy Pretzel” with his great big bear hugs and always tormenting them to make them laugh. John was a hardworking man but a child at heart.
