John is survived by his wife Carolyn, his sister Janet, his son Daniel, his daughter Kathleen, his son Steven, his daughter Dana, his daughter Shaunna, his daughter Stacy, and seven grandchildren.

His many bandmates over the years have remained among his closest friends. His family and friends will always remember him as a loving and supportive man and a great friend.
