Remembering his childhood vacations in upstate New York, John and his family moved to Van Etten when he retired in 1987. His retirement didn't last long when he started working in the Produce Department at Wegman's in Ithaca, a job he really enjoyed and was very proud of. A sports fan, John's teams were the NY Yankees and the Buffalo Bills. He also enjoyed singing and appreciating "doo-wop" music, drinks with ice, and watching WWE. John's most treasured times were those spent with his grandchildren. He will be forever loved by his family. Friends are invited to McInerny Funeral Home, corner of W.
