John lived all his life in the Fairfield area, he graduated from Fairfield High School, Class of 1983. He worked alongside his father and brothers at Roush Tree Service. He was on the fire department in Libertyville and worked for the ambulance service in Fairfield as a medic and driver. After his father and brothers passed, he and Cindy continued running Roush Tree Service. John did not know how to rest. He was always looking for a project or work to be done. His hobbies and interests were racing when he was younger, and he could usually be found working at the shop or relaxing at the pond fondly known as "Bolt's Hideaway." John would do anything for anybody, his favorite thing to do was spending time with family and his granddaughter “Sweet Pea." He will definitely be missed by many.
