John was hardworking, the ultimate handyman. He spent most of his career in maintenance and then began working alongside with his brother, Ted, who owned a painting business, Lind Contractors. John eventually ran the business on his own. He retired in his 70’s but still continued to work helping out family, friends and his church. John was a member at Eastbrook Church. He loved meeting people and making friends throughout his life.
