John and Heather were united in marriage on September 17, 2002. John's heart belonged to his children, they were what kept him thriving.

John cherished the last family vacation that he took with daughters, Kelsey and Kaylee in 2017 in Galveston, TX.Although John did not see his son John-John as much as he would have liked, he was still a very proud father.
