In 1993 he retired and relocated to his wife's hometown here in Lake County, CA on Robinson Rancheria. This is when he discovered how convenient Casino gaming and Bingo was at his fingertips. He became a regular bingo player for many years. When John wasn't playing bingo, he enjoyed making model airplanes, reading books, doing newspaper crossword puzzles and his all time favorite watching t.v. He liked all kinds of war movies, The History Channel, anything on the news, The View, and every Sunday evening 60 Minutes.
