About the author:
John grew up to enjoy the great outdoors at Grass Lake, Illinois which is on the Wisconsin border. There his mother, Vi raised his older brother, Arlad and John with all the outdoor activities one could imagine. Hunting, fishing and camping the three would enjoy in Illinois and Wisconsin. After high school John attended Wisconsin State University-Whitewater through his junior year. He attended one summer term in Paris, France during his sophomore year and he also went to the Bahamas that same year. Then in 1967 he transferred to the University of South Dakota where he earned a BFA degree in 1968. In 1969 he went to the University of California-Davis and earned a MFA degree in 1971. His employment history is wide and varied. He worked at his father's fishing resort during summers and after his BFA degree was employed as a commercial artist in Milwaukee, WI. At the University of California-Davis he taught a summer ceramic's class following his MFA degree and then moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota where he was employed by the Walker Art Center in their A-V department. Next moving to Colorado he worked as a commercial carpenter. Returning to education in 1979-80 he taught on the High School level at Greeley, Nebraska. The National College of Education during '82-83 employed him to instruct graduate courses in adult education. In 1984 John returned to Nebraska with his wife, Mary Ellen and went to work for the State of Nebraska's Elk's Association program of assisting disabled people into employment. That was a grant program that expired in two years. He and his wife then opened up a retail store and outfitting business in Central Nebraska and South Dakota. In 2004 John was the comedian in the Deadwood, South Dakota Chamber of Commerce's Christmas production rounding out his employment years. The couple then returned to their Nebraska home where unfortunately in 2006 John had his right leg amputated above his knee. During his lifetime John was always connected to the outdoors. Growing up on a rural lake offered a wide knowledge of the great outdoors along with being a Boy Scout and Explorer Scout. In adult life he worked as a big game guide in Wyoming and an outfitter in Nebraska. All the years of guiding and outfitting offered an abundance of humor it must be said. During 2011 John wrote the humorous newsletter, "Musky News" that was distributed to fishermen headed to Maine. Presently he offers his fun and humor in the stories of "Humor In The Great Outdoors."
